Police have revised the number of people that were hurt during a shooting in East Oakland on Sunday afternoon. They now say that two adults and two children were injured when the gunfire started.

The shooting happened at 2:21 p.m. on 104th Avenue and Graffian Street. Eight blocks were closed off while police searched for the shooter or shooters.

Police first reported that four adults and one child were hurt in the shooting. They say there were concerned that bullets may have ricocheted and injured other people.

Officials later revised the number of those injured. It's now reported that a man, a woman, an 8-year-old girl, and a 12-year-old girl were hurt in the shooting.

We spoke with Lt. Carlos Gonzalez who gave us an update on the 12-year-old's condition, "Nothing life threatening whatsoever," he said. "She is with her mother so everything appears to be okay at this time right now. But we want to get additional information and find out how this happened."

Police are still in their preliminary phase of the investigation. They're still unsure how it started, how it escalated. They are still piecing together witness accounts. All the victims are expected to be okay.

This was the second shooting in the city on Sunday. The first was reported at 2:07 p.m. on 80th Avenue and Rudsdale Street. Police have not released many details about this shooting.

No suspects in either shooting are in custody at this time.
