Berkeley police say another shooting took place yesterday morning in a city that has seen a rash of violence in the past several weeks.
The incident occurred just after midnight this morning when four men standing near 841 Gilman Street were approached by three other men, one of whom produced a handgun, police said.
The armed suspect ordered the four men to lie on the ground, but one resisted and a struggle ensued.
A single shot was fired, wounding a 27-year-old man, and the three men fled, police said.
A Berkeley police officer nearby heard the shot and was able to apprehend Caderias Rayandre Evans, 22.
Police say Evans has been positively identified by witnesses as the shooter.
Evans was booked and is currently being held at the Berkeley City Jail. The other two men presumably are still at large.
The victim, who was not identified, is in stable condition at Highland Hospital, police said.
Berkeley police say an unprecedented number of shootings have hit the city in the past month and a half.
