PITTSBURG (CBS SF) — A man was killed and a woman suffered life-threatening injuries in shooting at a supermarket parking lot in Pittsburg early Thursday morning, authorities said.

Pittsburg police arrived at the parking lot of the Foods Co supermarket on 300 Atlantic Ave. shortly before 3 a.m. and found two gunshot victims, one of them shot in the head.

There was no immediate word from police on the victims’ identities. According to police, both victims were Pittsburg residents in their early 20s.
