RICHMOND, Calif. —
A man was wounded and a woman narrowly escaped injury in a hail of gunfire in Richmond on Tuesday night, police said.
The pair was exiting a car in the 800 block of Virginia Avenue around 11:30 p.m. when someone walked up and fired more than 20 rounds from an assault rifle, Detective Nicole Abetkov said.
The man suffered a bullet graze wound to the head and the woman was unhurt, the detective said.
Officers who heard the gunfire quickly arrived at the scene but were unable to locate the shooter, Abetkov said.
The male victim was taken to Kaiser Permanente Richmond Medical Center where he was treated and released.
As of Wednesday, police did not have a suspect description and no arrests had been made.
