Suspects shot and wounded two employees at a long-standing Berkeley music venue during an armed robbery early this morning, a police spokeswoman said. The shooting and armed robbery occurred minutes after midnight at the Ashkenaz Music and Dance Community Center at 1317 San Pablo Ave., Officer Jennifer Coats said. Two armed suspects entered the crowded center and demanded cash from employees. The suspects shot and wounded two of the employees before fleeing the business, Coats said.
The wounded employees were taken to a local hospital to be treated for serious injuries. Officers arrived on the scene within moments and attempted to stop one of the suspects who was fleeing from the area. The suspect ran into a yard and officers surrounded the block. Police conducted a yard-to-yard search of the area with the aid of an Alameda County Sheriff’s K-9 deputy and were found the suspect hiding behind a building in the 1300 block of San Pablo Avenue. During the search, area residents were notified of the incident and asked to stay inside their homes. Police have not released the name of the suspect who was arrested. The second suspect remains at large.
