Although the store is located at 4400 Shellmound St. in Emeryville, the shooting, which was reported at 7:35 p.m. on Tuesday, occurred in its parking lot, which is in Oakland, so Oakland police are in charge of the investigation, police spokesman Jeff Thomason said.
Taylor, a 23-year-old Oakland man, was pronounced dead at the scene after police responded to reports of gunshots, Thomason said.
Officers also found a 27-year-old San Francisco man suffering from gunshot wounds in another part of the parking lot and took him to a hospital, where he is in critical condition but is expected to survive, Thomason said.
The San Francisco man's involvement in the incident is being investigated, Thomason said.
He said police are looking for other people they believe were also involved in the shooting. USF officials weren't immediately available for comment today. According to the university's website, Taylor was a 6-foot-9-inch, 245-pound center who last played for USF in the 2008-09 season.
He stopped playing after being suspended by coach Rex Walters toward the end of the season for failing to comply with instructions during practice. Three other players were also suspended, according to the site.
Taylor was a native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and was majoring in sociology at USF.
