Man wounded in shooting at San Pablo park in Berkeley

A man was wounded in a shooting in Berkeley's San Pablo Park Tuesday morning, a police officer said.

Police received reports of gunshots at the park at 11:08 a.m.

When officers arrived, they found a man, believed to be in his 20s, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds next to the park's restrooms near the basketball courts, police Officer Byron White said.

"The crime scene technicians are collecting evidence and officers are canvassing the neighborhood looking talking to any potential witnesses," said White.

The victim was taken to a hospital and is in critical condition.

Witnesses described seeing a light skinned man in his 20s flee after the shooting. The suspect was described as standing about 6 feet tall and wearing a cream-colored shirt and baggy jeans, according to White.

This is the 13th shooting in Berkeley this year.

Anyone with information about the shooting has been asked to contact Berkeley police at (510) 981-5900.
