Police have made an arrest in the June 1 shooting of an Alameda man on the corner of Second and Brush streets.

Theodore Jerome LeBlanc Jr., 28, of San Francisco was arrested Monday night in Emeryville and charged with attempted murder. LeBlanc was being held Tuesday in Alameda City Jail on $80,000 bail.

LeBlanc is scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m. today at Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse in Oakland.

Alameda Police Sgt. Jill Ottaviano said LeBlanc was known to both Oakland and San Francisco police. Oakland police helped local detectives identify LeBlanc as a suspect, and San Francisco police tracked him to an address in Emeryville, where they found him Monday night and detained him. Alameda police picked him up from there.

Police have still not released a motive for the shooting, and they are still investigating the case, Ottaviano said. Police said they believe the victim and the suspect knew each other, but they did not detail the relationship.

They said the shooting occurred at 2:03 a.m. June 1 on the corner of Second and Brush. The suspect fled in an unknown vehicle.

The victim, a 35-year-old man, had multiple gunshot wounds in his torso and head. Ottaviano said the victim, who police said was conscious and communicative when they reached him, is recovering.
