OAKLAND -- One man was killed and two others wounded in three shootings Saturday evening and early Sunday in East Oakland, police said.

The fatal shooting happened about 9:39 p.m. Saturday in the 5700 block of Foothill Boulevard.

Killed was a 20-year-old Hayward man who may have been in Oakland to visit friends. His name was not released.

He died at a hospital. Police have not released a motive and no arrests have been made.

At 12:01 a.m. Sunday, a 20-year-old man was shot while at a "sideshow" near 106th Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard.

The man told police he heard gunfire before he was wounded in the back. He got his own ride to a hospital where he was in stable condition and expected to recover.

Police don't know if the man was the intended target or was hit by random gunfire.

The shooting was another act of violence that has plagued the illegal sideshows, which have been going on for many years, including one June 1, at that same 106th Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard location where three people were wounded by gunfire.

At the sideshows, participants speed in their vehicles and commit other acts of reckless driving in front of large crowds of onlookers. It was not immediately known exactly how many cars or observers were at this sideshow.

At 5:45 p.m. Saturday, a man was shot in the 1000 block of 81st Avenue. A house was also hit by gunfire but no one else was reported injured. Police said two gunmen fled on foot.
