UPDATE: One-year-old child among eight injured in Oakland shooting

A one-year-old child was among eight people who were injured in a shooting in West Oakland Monday evening, police said.

The shooting was reported shortly after 6 p.m. near Seventh and Willow streets, police said.

All of the victims — including men, at least one woman and a child — were taken to hospitals. Most of the victims, including the one-year-old, were in stable condition as of 8 p.m., according to police.

No suspects are in custody and no suspect description was immediately available.

An employee at a nearby restaurant said he heard around 30 to 40 gunshots at around 6 p.m. but did not see the shooter or shooters.

The restaurant worker said he was shocked by the violence.

“It used to be peaceful around here,” he said.
