A man in his 20s was shot in the foot Wednesday night in northwest Berkeley, authorities report.
Officers were dispatched to the 1700 block of Fifth Street just before 10:15 p.m. when callers heard gunfire, Berkeley police said.
Officers searched the area and determined that a shooting had occurred. They found damage to a fence and car but no suspects or victims remained at the scene.
