Update, Feb. 16: Authorities released the name Friday of the man who was shot to death in Oakland on Feb. 3. He has been identified as 27-year-old Patrick Demarco Scott. Scott was pronounced dead at 11:31 a.m., less than an hour after he was shot just over the Berkeley border on Market Street in North Oakland. A press hold by OPD was in effect through Friday, Feb. 16, to keep the name from being released. OPD lifted the press hold Friday afternoon after Berkeleyside sought an update in the case. No additional information has been released.

Update, Feb. 3, 1:25 p.m. Authorities have confirmed that the man who was shot has died. His age and city of residence have not been released. Berkeleyside has requested additional information from the Oakland Police Department.

Original story, Feb. 3, 11:37 a.m. One person was shot at the Berkeley-Oakland border Saturday morning, authorities report.

Police were called to 63rd and Market streets at 10:50 a.m. for a report of gunfire.


Police said at least one man had been shot, but his condition was unknown as of publication time. No other injuries have been reported.

Although the shooting took place in Oakland, on the Berkeley border where Market becomes Sacramento Street, police officers from Oakland and Berkeley are working on the investigation. OPD identified the location of the shooting as the 6200 block of Market Street.

Police said traffic on Market at 62nd Street has been impacted because a lane is closed. Drivers should expect a delay.

One Berkeleyside reader said she heard 10 gunshots at the time of the shooting, then sirens 10 minutes later. It wasn’t the first time she’s heard gunfire in the neighborhood this week.

“Happened on Wednesday night on the border,” she wrote on Twitter, “same ten shots.”


Berkeleyside will update this story if additional information becomes available.
