OAKLAND -- A 35-year-old Berkeley man was shot in the leg Thursday night as he walked along West Oakland streets, police said.
The shooting happened just two blocks from where another man was shot just hours earlier and police on Friday were trying to determine if the shootings were connected.
The second shooting took place at 10 p.m. near 10th and Markets streets.
The man, whose name was not released, told police he was in the area visiting friends and was walking when someone opened fire on him from a passing car.
After the shooting the man flagged down a taxi and was given a ride to a hospital, where police said he was in stable condition on Friday.
Police don't have a motive and no arrests have been made.
The earlier shooting happened about 12:40 p.m. Thursday, when a man was shot in the buttocks near the intersection of 8th and Chester streets. He was also taken to a hospital and remained in stable condition on Friday.
