At 6:55 p.m. on Thursday, Berkeley police officers responded to multiple calls regarding gunshots on 10th Street and Bancroft Way, as first reported by Berkeleyside.

Once Berkeley Police Department, or BPD, officers arrived, they found a “shooting scene” and contacted several witnesses still in the area, according to BPD Lt. Spencer Fomby. One man suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transferred to Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, Fomby added.

“This is the block I grew up on. This is my community, and anytime that there is an incident of violence, especially gun violence, I feel devastated and torn,” said Berkeley City Council candidate Terry Taplin, who observed police officers in the area near his home.
