On Sunday, August 20, 2023, at 10:19 pm, El Cerrito and Richmond Police officers responded to a shooting incident.
The incident began when suspects began chasing the victims in the City of Richmond, near the intersection of Macdonald Ave. and 1st St. As the victims fled eastbound in their car on Macdonald Ave., the suspects shot at them over the course of 50 city blocks, hitting the victims with bullets several times.
