RICHMOND (CBS SF) — Police in Richmond are investigating a shooting that sent one person to the hospital Saturday night, a lieutenant said Sunday.

Officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 600 block of Griffin Drive at about 8 p.m., Lt. Bisa French said.

When officers arrived they found one male in his car suffering from a gunshot wound, French said.

He was transported to a hospital to be treated for his injuries.

Two men were seen getting into a white SUV and fled the area shortly after the shooting, according to French. There is no additional suspect information, she said.

French said it appears the male who was shot appears to have been the intended target of the shooting.
