OAKLAND, Calif. — An off-duty paramedic who was shot while driving in the Oakland Hills on Tuesday was pronounced dead at 3:53 p.m. Thursday, police said.

Quinn Boyer, 34, had worked for Santa Clara County Ambulance for the past two years and had worked as a paramedic for a total of five years, according to company spokeswoman Monica Gomez.

Sgt. Arturo Bautista said it appears that someone in another vehicle shot Boyer shortly before noon Tuesday and that Boyer then crashed his car down a ravine in the 5200 block of Keller Avenue. Bautista said the motive for the shooting is not yet clear, although police are looking at the possibility that it may have stemmed from a robbery attempt.
