One Killed, Three Injured in Separate Oakland Shootings

One person was killed and three more were wounded in two separate shootings over a five-hour period in Oakland on Saturday night and early Sunday morning, a police officer said Sunday.

The homicide was reported at 8:07 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of Apgar and West streets, about a block from the MacArthur BART station, according to Oakland police Officer N. Allen.

Officers arrived to find a victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The man was fatally shot in front of a convenience store near the BART station and has been identified as 26-year-old Oakland resident Terryl Rucker, police said Sunday.

No suspects have been arrested in connection with the killing, which remains under investigation.

Rucker's murder was the latest fatality in a bloody week in Oakland that saw four homicides and numerous injuries by shootings.

Early Sunday morning, in a second shooting, three people were shot in Oakland's Fruitvale District by a suspect who apparently knew them.

They were shot at about 12:35 a.m. in the 3300 block of Foothill Boulevard and were taken to a hospital in stable condition.

The suspect fled the area in a vehicle and had not been arrested as of this morning, police said.

On Friday afternoon a 22-year-old man was shot and killed in the San Antonio neighborhood.

He was found inside a home in the 2000 block of 22nd Avenue where he was pronounced dead. Police have not released the man's name.

Another man was found shot and killed Wednesday evening in the 1600 block of 69th Avenue just after 7 p.m. Police have not released his name or a description of any suspects in the case.

The week began with a possible road rage killing of 30-year-old mother of four Perla Avina on 98th Avenue just after 12:30 p.m. last Saturday.

Police did make an arrest in that case, tracking down and arresting Carl Stephen Dubose, 20, of Oakland after a standoff in Elk Grove on Wednesday.

Dubose was booked into Santa Rita Jail in Dublin without bail Thursday night and is set to appear in court Monday morning, according to jail records.

Police are asking anyone with information about any recent homicides to call the Oakland police Homicide Section at (510) 238-3821.
