   A man and two juveniles suspected of opening fire on an Oakland street Wednesday night — in a shooting that injured two people — were arrested and told police they belonged to a street gang, police said. Two people were walking near their homes in the 8700 block of Bancroft Avenue at about 8 p.m. Wednesday when they were approached by the man and two juveniles, police said. Two of the suspects were armed with guns and fired at the victims, striking one of the victims in the leg but missing the other. Police said a third victim was struck in the leg by a stray round. The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle, which police located a short time later traveling in the 1600 block of 57th Avenue. Witnesses positively identified the suspects, police said, and the suspects were subsequently arrested and transported to the Police Department. Police said that the three suspects confessed to belonging to a street gang, but police have not yet released information on a possible motive for the shooting.
