Oakland shooting

Oakland police are investigating a shooting that left two people injured.

Police responded to 68th Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard at 5:30 p.m. Saturday after neighbors reported hearing gunshots.

One neighbor told ABC7 News off camera that a local cable technician ran to her for cover right after the shots were fired, "Comcast was here and it was gunshots and he came in and jumped on the floor. Kids were already on the floor."

A short time later, police responded to a car crash less than a mile away at Edwards and Sunnymere avenues near I-580.

Investigators believe that's where the victims crashed their car after being shot.

The two men in the car managed to take themselves to the hospital. Their injuries are not considered life threatening.
