* Oakland Police Update Description of Suspect Car From Sweet Jimmie’s Shooting

Oakland police today released an updated description of the vehicle they believe was used by the suspects in a shooting at a restaurant near Jack London Square early Monday that left two men dead and four other people wounded. Police now say they think the suspects were in a four-door, white, newer-model Toyota Camry. Based on initial witness descriptions, police previously said they thought the vehicle was a Dodge Avenger. Investigators described the suspects, who are still at large, as four black males in their late teens or early 20s.

William Jenkins, 27, of Oakland and 22-year-old Adam Williams of  San Leandro were killed in the shooting at Sweet Jimmie’s at 311 Broadway at 12:42 a.m. on Monday. Two male victims are still in critical condition, according to Oakland police spokeswoman Cynthia Perkins. Two women were hit by gunfire but their injuries are non-life-threatening and they’re no longer receiving treatment, Perkins said.

She said there are no additional details on the shooting at this time. Perkins said people who have tips about the shooting should call the Oakland police homicide section at (510) 238-3821 or send an email to [email protected]
