EMERYVILLE (CBS SF) – Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying an armed robbery suspect who allegedly shot his victim in the head in Emeryville in February.
The shooting occurred around 9:10 p.m. on Feb. 11 in the vicinity of 59th and Horton streets.
A witness told investigators that he was walking toward the Amtrak station with the victim when a man brandished a handgun at them before firing one shot into the victim’s head.
The 26-year-old man was found unconscious and was transported to a hospital where he was still in critical condition a week later. An update on his condition was not immediately available today.
Police have released a video clip, apparently depicting the suspect as he fled the scene.
They described him as a dark-skinned man, roughly 18 to 25 years old, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and blue high-top shoes.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact investigators at (510) 596-3700.
