No arrests have been made in connection with a series of three shootings that occurred in less than 90 minutes in Oakland on Thursday night, injuring six people, police said Friday.

The outbreak of violence began around 8:30 p.m., when three men were shot in the 1000 block of 89th Avenue, police Officer Jason Scott said.

A second shooting occurred at 9:47 p.m. in the 2200 block of 98th Avenue, injuring two men.

Only minutes later, at 9:51 p.m., one man was shot in the 7100 block of International Boulevard, Scott said.

No injuries suffered by any of the victims in the shootings are considered life-threatening.

Scott said there is no suspect information available for any of the shootings, and no arrests have been made.

None of the shootings appear to be related at this time, although investigators are looking into possible connections, Scott said.
