Oakland Shootings

In less than 24 hours over the weekend, 12 people were shot along Oakland streets -- three of them fatally, their deaths marking the city's 63rd, 64th and 65th homicides of the year.

As of Sunday evening, investigators had not identified a motive or a suspect in any of the shootings, and none appeared to be connected, police said.

The bloody spate of shootings began just after 11 p.m. Friday outside an East Oakland house where a birthday party was being held. Police say four men were shot in the 400 block of 105th Avenue in the Sobrante Park area.
