A man was wounded in a drive-by shooting in South Berkeley Saturday afternoon.
Witnesses say they heard gunshots around 2:30 p.m. in the area arounf California Street and Ashby Avenue from an unidentified blue four-door vehicle, according to Berkeley Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Mary Kusmiss.
Kusmiss said police believe the victim was inside of his car when the shooting occurred.
Police have not released the identity of the victim, and they say it is too early in the investigation to determine a possible motive for the unlawful discharge.
The victim was taken to Highland Hospital in Oakland where he is currently being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
There have been two fatal shootings in the city since the beginning of 2012. The first of the two occurred on January 26 when 32-year-old Hercules resident Kenneth Warren was shot and killed on the 3000 block of Shattuck Avenue. The second occurred on March 29, which resulted in the death of 24-year-old Berkeley resident Devin Whitmire near the intersection of Sacramento and Oregon streets in South Berkeley.
