El Cerrito police are searching for up to four suspects in connection with a shooting that occurred just before 5 p.m. Thursday near Santa Clara Avenue and Lassen Street.

Multiple residents reported hearing sounds of gunfire, and when officers arrived they found a victim who was not injured, police said.

The victim said unknown men shot at him from a vehicle, which was described as a dark gray Toyota Camry sedan with tinted windows and a spoiler.

Witness accounts of the suspects varied, however, and police are urging anyone with information to contact the non-emergency dispatch line at (510) 237-3233.
