A male victim in his teens suffered life-threatening injuries Saturday in a shooting that police say was not a random act of violence, a police spokeswoman said.  

The shooting was reported at 3:26 p.m. Saturday in the 1500 block of Alcatraz Avenue, Berkeley police Sgt. Mary Kusmiss said.  

Officers responded and found the victim in an apartment, Kusmiss said. He was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, she said.  

The man was still alive and in surgery at a local hospital as of about 10 p.m. Saturday, Kusmiss said.  

Further updates on his condition have not yet become available. Investigators have been looking for another possible crime scene connected to the shooting besides the apartment, Kusmiss said. No arrests have been made and Berkeley police say that no suspect information has yet become available.
