A man who was fatally shot in Berkeley on Thursday night has been identified as 24-year-old Dustin Bynum, police said today. 

The shooting happened at about 9:15 p.m. in the 1800 block of San Pablo Avenue, near the Albatross Pub. 

Officers responded to multiple reports of shots fired and found Bynum, a Berkeley resident, suffering from gunshot wounds, police said. He was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

The murder was Berkeley's third of 2013 and came 13 days after Jermaine Davis was found shot in the 1800 block of Derby Street at about 6:50 p.m. on July 17. Davis died at a hospital a short time later. 

Bynum was shot about a block and a half from the spot in the 1000 block of Delaware Street where 34-year-old Zontee Jones was fatally shot shortly after 11 a.m. on Feb. 4. 

Two suspects have been arrested and charged with murder in connection with Jones' death, but no one has been arrested for the deaths of Bynum or Davis.
