Berkeley Police Department officers responded to a report of a shooting Tuesday at 4:59 p.m., resulting in the arrest of two suspects from Oakland.

Officers arrived at the intersection of California Street and Prince Street and found a 32-year-old Oakland man with a single gunshot wound, according to BPD spokesperson Officer Byron White. Another man was also found at the scene, who others alleged to be the suspect who shot the 32-year-old man.

The suspect was identified as a 41-year-old Oakland man who “immediately surrendered to officers,” White said in an email. The 32-year-old man was transported to a local hospital “with injuries that are not believed to be life threatening,” White added.

“The shooting occurred after the 41-year-old man intervened in a domestic dispute,” White said in the email. “During that confrontation, both men armed themselves–culminating in gunfire.”

The 41-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of alleged assault with a deadly weapon and carrying a loaded or concealed firearm, according to White. The 32-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of alleged assault with a deadly weapon, in addition to making criminal threats.
