A man was shot dead Tuesday afternoon near the UC Berkeley campus.

A fatal shooting on Tuesday, just a block from the U.C. Berkeley campus is under investigation.

Witnesses report two men were arguing when the shooting happened. They heard five successive shots around 4:00 p.m. Tuesday afternoon near Bowditch and Durant streets.

Family members say the man who died is Maceo Smith who worked for Oakland's Park and Recreation Department. They say he had a wife and three children and he coached little league.

Police are interviewing a possible suspect who drove himself to Oakland's Highland Hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound.

The victim was not a UC student.

This is the fifth murder in Berkeley this year.
