Oakland police arrested a man who allegedly burglarized a car and later shot four people on Saturday afternoon.

Officers were dispatched to a shooting in the 1700 block of Telegraph Avenue at 4:10 p.m. Saturday, Oakland police Officer Johnna Watson said.

Prior to the shooting, the suspect allegedly broke into a car, stole items and fled, Watson said.

Police said witnesses chased down the suspect and recovered the property. The suspect then returned to the scene on a bicycle with a firearm.

He allegedly shot two women and two men then fled the scene, Watson said.

All four victims suffered gunshot wounds that are not considered life-threatening, according to police.

Police eventually arrested the suspect but have not released his identity pending review of the case by the Alameda County District Attorney's Office.
