Richmond police are investigating a shooting outside a San Pablo Avenue barbershop Thursday.
The incident occurred just before 6 p.m. in the 12500 block of San Pablo Avenue, between Solano and Clinton avenues, Richmond police Capt. Al Walle said.
According to a witness report, the victim, a Bay Area resident, went to his car to wait for his turn at the barbershop when an unknown vehicle pulled up. A suspect exited the vehicle and opened fire through the driver’s side window at the victim. The victim was struck multiple times as he attempted to flee.
The victim is recovering at a local hospital. He reportedly did not see nor know the suspects, is not in a gang and in fact had just left work when he was attacked.
The suspect was described as a black man in his 20s wearing an orange and grey hooded sweat jacket. The suspect fled in a waiting gold sedan, Walle said.
