A spate of gunfire throughout Oakland overnight left several  victims injured just hours after a fatal shooting earlier Friday night, an  Oakland police officer said.
    A man was killed in a shooting in the 700 block of Sycamore Street  that was reported around 8 p.m. Friday, police said.

    A man was found there suffering from a gunshot wound. He was  transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.     A child suffered a graze wound in the shooting and was transported  to a separate hospital in stable condition, according to police.
    Later in the evening, a robbery turned into a shooting around  11:05 p.m. Friday night in the 3500 block of Salisbury Avenue, Officer Kevin  McDonald said.
    One victim was taken to the hospital in stable condition with a  gunshot wound, McDonald said.
    Four suspects, at least one of whom was armed, were involved in  the gunfire, he said.
    Early this morning an East Oakland double shooting injured two  people, one of whom refused to be treated for injuries. The other victim was  taken to the hospital in stable condition, McDonald said.
    That shooting was reported at 12:45 a.m. in the 1500 block of 80th  Avenue, McDonald said.
    Two suspects were believed to have shot at those victims.
    Just seven minutes later, another shooting was reported in the  5300 block of Foothill Boulevard, McDonald said.
    One victim was taken to the hospital in stable condition with a  gunshot wound.
    Later in the morning around 3:40 a.m., a shooting was reported in  the 2300 block of Church Street.
    One victim as found injured and was hospitalized in stable  condition, McDonald said.
    No suspects were taken into custody for any of the overnight  shootings, the officer said.
