One killed, six injured in four separate shootings in Oakland 

Over the weekend, one man was shot and killed while six others were non-fatally shot and suffered various injuries in four separate shootings throughout Oakland, an Oakland police spokeswoman said.

The man fatally shot in the 2900 block of High Street on Saturday afternoon has been identified as 50-year-old Oakland resident Leo Dunson, police spokeswoman Holly Joshi said.

Officers found Dunson suffering from a gunshot wound around 2:20 p.m. Efforts by emergency medical personnel failed and he was pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting.

The shooting is under investigation with the motive for the murder unknown, Joshi said.

Later, on Saturday night around 10:30 p.m. officers found a 52-year-old Oakland man shot in the driveway of his apartment complex as he was returning home in the 2400 block of 90th Avenue, Joshi said.

The gunshot victim was taken to a local hospital in stable condition for treatment, Oakland police Officer J. Moore said.

No suspects have been found, he said.

Early this morning, two separate shootings occurred before 2 a.m.

The first shooting of the day occurred at about 1:22 a.m. in the area of 59th and Genoa Streets. Officers found two men suffering from gunshot wounds, with what appear to be non-life threatening injuries, Joshi said.

Just before 2 a.m., a shooting outside of a nightclub in the 1200 block of Webster Avenue left one man in critical condition and hospitalized two other men, Moore said.

Two of the gunshot victims, who were taken to the hospital, are in stable condition. The third man was scheduled to undergo surgery for critical injuries at about 3:30 a.m. after he was found shot at 1:55 a.m., Officer Kevin McDonald said.

No suspects are in custody for either Sunday morning shooting, police said.
