A shooting occurred near the border between Berkeley and Oakland early Sunday morning, resulting in one man being taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds, as first reported by Berkeleyside.

Berkeley Police Department received reports of a loud sound at 1:36 a.m. near Market and 63rd streets, and then a report of a “man down,” according to BPD Sgt. Dave Lindenau. BPD and Oakland Police Department responded, but because the event happened in Oakland, OPD is handling the case, Lindenau said.

The victim was transported to a hospital and was alive at the time of transportation, according to Lindenau.
