A shooting near the intersection of Sacramento and Woolsey streets in Berkeley at about 12:40 p.m. Friday that left two teenage males injuredwasn’t random, police said today. However, Berkeley police Sgt. Mary Kusmiss declined to explain why police think the shooting wasn’t random, saying, “We do not have any further information we are sharing publicly today.”

The victims are both from Oakland and one is 17 years old and the other is 18, Kusmiss said. She said one of the victims was treated and released on Friday and the other victim is in stable condition at a hospital and is expected to recover.  Berkeley police, with the assistance of Oakland Police Department canine units, searched a two-block area near the shooting scene after witnesses said the suspect or suspects in the shooting fled up Shooting on Woolsey Street but didn’t find anyone. Berkeley police said anyone with information about the shootin should call their homicide unit at (510) 981-5741 or their 24-hour non-emergency number, which is (510) 981-5900.
