Two Teens Injured In Richmond, CA Church Shooting
Police are looking for suspects in the Richmond church shooting that took place yesterday in California. Two or three young men have been identified as suspects in the shooting that took place at the New Gethsemane Church of God and Christ during the 12:30pm congregation yesterday.
One of the men open-fired on the church congregation of over 100 people. The hooded gunman and two other suspects are being sought after. Two brothers, 14 and 19-years-old, were injured in the shooting. It remains uncertain whether or not this was a direct and targeted shooting but the brothers are co-operating with the Police's investigation.
"We're hoping we can make an arrest sometime in the near future," Richmond police spokeswoman Sgt. Bisa French told CNN.
Police are withholding the suspects' names. French said they're in their late teens or early 20s and live in Richmond, about 12 miles north of Oakland.
The gunman walked into the New Gethsemane Church of God and Christ on Sunday with his two accomplices, scanned the pews, and open-fired five shots. Although Police are still investigating the church shooting, there have already been witnesses who have come forward to provide leads. The two victims sustained minor injuries and are recovering.
