An early-morning shooting Monday in West Berkeley left two vehicles damaged by gunfire and two others that sustained collision damage, authorities said this week.
Limited information has been available, but the gunfire broke out at about 12:10 a.m. Monday in the 2200 block of Bonar Street, near Allston Way, Berkeley police said.
One woman told The Scanner she heard seven gunshots in the area. It was Berkeley's third shooting of the year.
Callers told police that there was a loud fight on the block at the time of the shooting.
When officers arrived on Bonar Street, they found a vehicle with collision damage that also had a bullet hole in it.
Police found two other vehicles in the area that also had been damaged in some type of crash.
When officers pulled over a driver in the area, they determined that vehicle also had been struck by gunfire, BPD said.
The people inside escaped unharmed, police said.
As of Wednesday, BPD said no one had been arrested in connection with the case. The investigation is ongoing.
There have now been three shootings in Berkeley this year, two of which left men wounded.
In one, however, the man who claimed to have been the victim of a drive-by shooting turned out to have sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
There had been just one shooting in Berkeley as of this time last year and no one was hurt as a result. The first injury shooting did not happen until March 2023.
