OAKLAND -- A man and woman suspected in a shooting that fatally injured a man were taken into custody Sunday night following a police pursuit from Oakland to Pleasant Hill. 

According to the Oakland Police Department, the shooting happened Sunday night just after 9:30 p.m. on the 7800 block of Arthur Street. Officers responded to the area to investigate a ShotSpotter activation and, after arriving on scene, were directed to an adult male Oakland resident suffering from a gunshot wound.
