2 found slain, 1 found fatally shot in Oakland 

Oakland police say two people were found slain and another fatally shot in what appears to be separate incidents within minutes of each other on Friday night.

The bodies of the man and woman were discovered in a car parked outside a home near Lake Merritt around 9:34 p.m. Police had gone to the home to check on the well-being of a couple after co-workers reported not hearing from them.

The victims in the car have not been identified, but the Oakland Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/yrxUGn) that they are believed to be the same couple — a 55-year-old man and his 50-year-old wife.

In an earlier incident, a 19-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound around 9:23 p.m. The man, whose identity has not been released, later died.
