Danville shooting victim expected to survive

Search for suspect, investigation continue

Police are searching for a man wanted in connection with a shooting Thursday morning in Danville. The victim, a 52-year-old man, was shot once in the chest and is expected to survive, according to a news release from the Danville Police Department. He was not identified.

The shooting occurred in the 700 block of El Pintado Road at 10:17 a.m. Police said the victim and the suspect know each other, and that the shooting was not a random act.

Danville police, along with officers from San Ramon, the California Highway Patrol and Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office, conducted a search without locating the suspect.

The man wanted in connection with the shooting is described as a black male in his mid 20s, clean shaven with short hair. The man is approximately 6 feet tall and 175 pounds. He was wearing a dark long-sleeved shirt and dark jeans.

The shooting and search prompted three San Ramon schools to be locked down for about a half hour today. Stone Valley and Los Cerros middle schools and Monte Vista High School closed their doors between 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m., according to district Spokesman Terry Koehne.

Danville police said they did not request the lockdown.

The investigation is continuing. The Danville Police Department is asking anyone with information to contact them at 314-3700.
