2 shot in Emeryville Target parking lot, 1 victim in critical condition

Officers found him walking a block away where they took him into custody. They say shootings in and around Target are rare. Weapons were also recovered, however authorities did not specify what kind of weapons were used.

Police are investigating a shooting in a Target store parking lot in Northern California that left two people critically injured. One of the victims was said to be in critical condition. Police are trying to determine what led up to the shooting, but they say it appears none of them had been shopping.

At 6:01 p.m., dispatchers received a report of the shooting at the East Bay Bridge Center, which stretches along 40th Street from San Pablo Avenue in Oakland to Shellmound Street in Emeryville. The number of bullet holes found on at least two vehicles shows that several shots were fired.

The incident caused serious traffic congestions in the area, according to Emeryville police chief Jennifer Tejada.


The parking lot has been reportedly blocked off and about two dozen police cars were seen in the area.

Witnesses reported seeing a man next to the SUV firing a gun and one man being hit by gunfire.

This is a developing story.
