Three people were expected to recover after being shot by suspects in a vehicle that fired gunshots at them over the course of 50 blocks in Richmond and El Cerrito, police said.
The approximately 10-minute drama started Sunday about 10:10 p.m., according to a statement from El Cerrito police. The three gunshot victims all went by ambulance to a hospital; police said they will recover.
El Cerrito police said they are asking residents and businesses on Macdonald Avenue to review their surveillance cameras for any potential clues. They also asked residents on Mono Avenue to do the same thing and emphasized those cameras may have picked up a vehicle fleeing from the area.
Police said the vehicle with the suspects was described as a black four-door crossover sedan.
According to police, the suspects were in that vehicle and began chasing the victims, who also were in a vehicle. That chase started near the intersection of Macdonald Avenue and 1st Street in Richmond and went east for at least 50 blocks while the suspects fired, police said.
The gunfire hit each victim more than once, according to police. Their vehicle collided with a parked car near the Mono Avenue intersection, and El Cerrito and Richmond police officers found them injured there.
