OAKLAND POLICE officials performed life-saving CPR on a shooting victim Saturday morning, police said.

Police officers responded to a report of a shooting on the 2300 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Way at 10:10 a.m.

When they arrived at the scene, they found the victim unresponsive, lying facedown on the street with multiple GUNSHOT wounds, police said.

Officer Michael Morse and crime scene technician Katharine Potter, who had accompanied officers, detected a week pulse in the victim, according to police.

Working together, Morse and Potter rolled the victim over and administered CPR until paramedics arrived, police said.

The victim was transported to a local hospital, where he underwent surgery, according to police.

A nurse later told Officer Karl Templeman that the victim was in stable condition, and the on-site CPR likely saved his life.
