Man Dies After Shooting In Richmond’s Iron Triangle

RICHMOND (CBS SF) – A 21-year-old man died Sunday after he was shot in Richmond’s Iron Triangle neighborhood late Saturday morning, a Richmond police sergeant said Monday.

Around 11:20 a.m., calls came in and a ShotSpotter activation alerted police about shots fired in the 500 block of Fourth Street, Richmond police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said.

Officers arrived and found a man lying on the sidewalk suffering from a gunshot wound, she said.

He was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition and was then taken to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, where he succumbed to his injuries at 12:20 p.m. Sunday, Abetkov said.

The victim was identified by police as Derrick Wilson, of Richmond.

The suspect was described only as a black man in his 20s wearing a white T-shirt and jeans. He was seen fleeing the area on a BMX bicycle.

Anyone with information about the killing is asked to call Richmond police Detective C. Decious at (510) 621-1747 or the anonymous tip line at (510) 232-TIPS (8477).
