Richmond police investigated multiple injury shootings Wednesday, including a man shot by his brother, a motorist in a separate incident who was shot on westbound Interstate Highway 80, and yet another incident involving an intoxicated man who went into a convenience store looking to buy booze, apparently unaware that he’d be shot.

At 1:19 p.m., officers responded to the report of a shooting involving brothers during a family disturbance in the 1700 block of Hellings Avenue, Richmond police Capt. Al Walle reported on social media. The victim was transported to a local trauma center in critical condition. The suspect, who fled the scene after the shooting, was later arrested following a traffic stop at Interstate 80 and Carlson Boulevard at 1:30 a.m. Thursday.

At 11:19 p.m. Wednesday, officers responded to Kaiser Hospital, where a motorist arrived seeking treatment for a gunshot wound. The California Highway Patrol shooting has assumed the investigation, as the shooting occurred on westbound I-80 near San Pablo Avenue, Walle said.

Just before midnight, officers responded to a convenience store in the 900 block of Cutting Boulevard on a report about a shooting victim. The victim, described as an intoxicated man with a bloody bandage on his shoulder, attempted to purchase alcohol but was refused for not having ID, Walle said.

“The man didn’t know how he was injured and was sent to the hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to his shoulder,” he added.

No arrests have been announced in connection with other two shooting incidents.
