(ROCKRIDGE, Calif.) Two people were wounded, one with life-threatening injuries, during a Saturday afternoon shooting at a Rockridge area barbershop.

At least two people opened fire at the Extravagant Grooming Lounge on the 5200 block of College Avenue around 5:50 p.m. Saturday, according to police.

A 20-something male customer at the barbershop was critically injured in the shooting and is still in grave condition at the hospital. The second victim, a barber at the shop, was also critically injured but drove himself to the hospital.

The numerous other people in the shop escaped without injury.

Investigators have not made any arrests nor determined any motive for the shooting, according to authorities. Additionally, police have not clarified the number of shooters, only saying that it was more than one.

This shooting comes in the wake of two separate shootings, one fatal, Friday morning in Oakland. Authorities told The East Bay Times they felt the shootings were unrelated.

The fatal shooting happened at 2:23 a.m. Friday morning in the 1400 block of 20th Avenue in East Oakland. Officers responded to ShotSpotter reports in the area to find a 20-year-old female, whose last known address was listed as Fresno, on the pavement suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

That shooting marked the 83rd homicide in the city this year.

The non-fatal shooting happened roughly an hour earlier at a homeless encampment near the 3400 block of Wood Street in West Oakland. A 31-year-old woman was found in an RV suffering from a gunshot wound. She was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. She was reportedly in stable condition, according to authorities.
