Man wounded in early morning Oakland shooting

A man was in critical condition early Thursday after a shooting on a street in Oakland’s Golden Gate District, authorities said.

A spokesman at Highland Hospital said the victim was driven to the hospital and was in critical, but stable condition with a head wound.

Oakland police said their shot spotter technology alerted them to gunshots in the area near 62nd and San Pablo Ave, at 6:02 a.m.

Officers arrived and found evidence of a shooting but no victim. A quick call to Highland alerted officers to the victim being treated there.

The shooting took place near the Golden Gate Recreation Center and the Aspire Berkeley Maynard Academy. Fortunately, the academy had not started classes for the day at the time of the shooting.

No arrests had been made and no suspect information was immediately available in connection with the shooting, according to police.

Livermore police officer rescues woman from fire

A Livermore police officer was being heralded as a hero after he kicked open the front door of burning home Tuesday night and pulled a woman to safety.

Authorities said officer Brian Sleeper was first to arrive at the fire on Grace Street Tuesday night.

"It was pretty chaotic," said the officer. "I saw flames coming over the back of the house."

A backyard shed was burning and so was the roof of a house.

Inside one of the bedrooms was an elderly woman unable to walk on her own.

"Several neighbors were pointing at the house yelling that there was a female trapped inside," Sleeper said.

He kicked in the front door and located the woman on the floor of the master bedroom.

He carried her out to the front lawn where she was treated by paramedics. Sleeper was also treated after he injured his right hand during the rescue.

He doesn't consider himself a hero, just an officer doing his job.

"I think it's something that anybody in my department would have done," he said. "I just happened to be in the right place at the right time."

Fire officials told KTVU that the flames were minutes, if not seconds, from reaching the bedroom where the woman was found.

They say it appears oily rags started the fire in the detached shed.

84-year-old gunman arrested in medical building shooting

An 84-year-old Daly City man surrendered to police Wednesday night in connection with a shooting that triggered an evacuation of a medical building earlier in the day, authorities said.

Daly City Police Sgt. Michael Bart said investigators were still trying to determine why Raymond Iwase fired a shot inside the medical building.

“When people think of 84-year-old people, they don’t think of them committing this kind of crime,” he told KTVU. “I think some people were shocked by the age of the suspect.”

Police had a description of the man and tracked him to his Plymouth Circle home at around 10 p.m. He surrendered without incident.

Investigators recovered a gun and ammunition during a search of the home. Iwase was booked at San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder.

A doctor, who was not identified, noticed the elderly man holding a handgun on the second floor of a medical building at 1500 Southgate at about 1:30 p.m.

He told police he heard a shot as he fled scene, triggering a large law enforcement response to the area. The building was evacuated and the facility was ringed by SWAT officers. 

A SWAT team search of the two floor building yielded no sign of any victims or the shooter.  Detectives located bullet fragments in a second floor hallway.

Police say the doctor did not recognize the man and the building did not have security camera.
