Richmond police responded to six shootings over seven days — from Sunday, May 9 to Sunday, May 16 — and are seeking the public’s help in investigating them.

On May 9 at 10:45 p.m., an occupant in an unknown vehicle drove  up and shot one round at a person standing outside in the area of Nevin Avenue and 20th Street, police said. The victim suffered a gunshot wound to his upper extremities and is expected to survive.

At about 1:30 p.m. Thursday, May 13, a passenger of a Toyota Camry fired multiple rounds at two victims standing in the area of 6th Street and Ripley Avenue. Ten cases were located at the scene and a nearby vehicle was struck by gunfire, but the victims were not injured, police said.

“Based on witness statements and surveillance footage, the Toyota Camry was located nearby, and seized for evidence,” police said.

At about 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, May 15, a person was shot once in the upper extremities while at a residence in the 100 block of 19th Avenue, police said.

Two suspects were seen fleeing the scene. The victim is expected to survive his injury.

Earlier that day at 2:25 a.m., a tow truck driver reported being shot at when attempting to help a motorist in the 2900 block of Groom Drive.

“The suspect brandished a firearm at the victim, shot his gun multiple times and fled the scene,” police said. “The victim was not injured.”

At 4:10 p.m. Sunday, an occupant of an unknown vehicle exiting the off-ramp at McByrde Avenue and Interstate 80 opened fire on a person in his vehicle, police said. 

A passerby stopped to help the victim, transporting him to Kaiser Richmond. The condition of the victim, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds, was not known.

“This is an ongoing investigation with the California Highway Patrol,” police said.

Earlier that day at 11:25 p.m., a ShotSpotter activation sent officers to the 100 block of Macdonald Avenue, where a victim was found suffering from gunshot wounds to his upper and lower extremities. The victim was transported from the scene in stable condition, police said.

No arrests have been announced in the shootings.

  4. Hello friends, an awesome testimony about a Great spell caster called Dr. Akereco I love to share. My name is Paul Cooper from South Africa. Getting my wife back is what I least expected and could never imagine. I and my wife have been married for 10 years and we have been living happily but all of a sudden she changed completely and turned away from me and I never knew what was going on, I tried to ask her but she refused to tell me what the problem is, and as time went on she sought for a divorce. I was so worried and confused, and I did all my possible best to get her back but it wasn’t easy, I thought all hope was lost, and during my search for a way out, a friend of mine who had a similar problem told me about a great spell caster called Dr. Akereco who helped him get back his wife also. I never believed in spell casting in my entire life or magic because I never thought it would work but I tried to give Dr. Akereco a chance and to my greatest surprise, He cast a spell to bring my wife back, today we are back together in a lovely home with 2 beautiful kids. We are happy together again and I am using this opportunity to tell anyone going through a similar situation
