A shooting that sent two teenagers to the hospital took place Saturday night near the 2800 block of Milvia Street, as first reported by Berkeleyside.

The two teens, a 19-year-old Berkeley resident and an 18-year-old Oakland resident, showed up at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland with gunshot wounds. The two arrived in a black Porsche SUV that was spotted at the scene of the shooting by witnesses, according to Berkeleyside.

Once the two teens parked on hospital property, an on-site police official called Berkeley Police Department to report their presence. Both had critical injuries and had been shot a number of times, according to Berkeleyside.

“(Both were) subsequently taken to a trauma center (and) both are expected to survive,” said BPD spokesperson Officer Byron White. 

Information about the shooters could not immediately be found, nor are the two teens cooperating with the police. The police currently believe that the teens were sitting in the Porsche at the time of the shooting, according to White, and the police found a significant amount of blood, as well as many bullet holes, inside the Porsche upon inspection.

BPD is still investigating the incident.
