RICHMOND, Calif. (KRON) — Two people were killed and one other was injured in two shootings in Richmond on Monday afternoon, the Richmond Police Department confirmed to KRON4. The murders took place within an hour and a half of each other.
Police responded to 5th Street and Macdonald Avenue — near the 4th Street Park — around 4:00 p.m. for the first shooting. One victim was killed and another is expected to survive after suffering major injuries, RPD said.
Officers found a 30-year-old man shot to death on the street. A 65-year-old man was found shot at the park. He was taken to a nearby trauma center and is expected to survive.
RPD described the shooting as a drive-by in which at least 40 rounds were fired. Police believe it could be related to a homicide last week that happened on Lancaster Drive.
At 5:20 p.m., police got a shot-spotter notification on the 2400 block of MacDonald Avenue. Officers found a 35-year-old man shot in the stomach, who later died at a local hospital.
