WALNUT CREEK -- A man shot Sunday night inside his car following a Concord Pavilion concert remained in critical condition Monday afternoon, said police, who were still searching for the shooter.
The female driver was treated for her injuries and released from the hospital, according to police. The names and ages of the victims were not released.
Shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday, witnesses said both the suspect and victims were driving their cars west on Ygnacio Valley Road, approaching a red light at Oak Grove Road, when the suspect pulled up next to the victims' car and fired into the front passenger seat.
The suspect then got out of his car and fired several times into the white, four-door Mercedes, striking both people, police said. The suspect drove north on Oak Grove Road toward Concord, police said.
The suspect was described as a black man in his early to mid-20s, about 6 feet to 6 feet, 2 inches tall with a medium build and wearing a black three-hole mask, a T-shirt and blue jeans. Police said he was armed with a semi-automatic handgun and was driving a light-colored, four-door sedan, possibly a Honda.
The victims had just left the pavilion, where KBLX's Stone Soul Concert featured Gladys Knight, The O'Jays, Freddie Jackson, Faith Evans and the S.O.S. Band, according to the venue's website.
Police said they did not yet know whether the suspect and the victims got into a fight at the concert or in the parking lot before the shooting, or whether the incident was provoked by road rage.
"We're looking at all angles, including that it was a random shooting," said Lt. Lanny Edwards, with the Walnut Creek Police Department. "We are still looking for witnesses who may have been there when the incident occurred."
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Walnut Creek Police Department at 925-943-5844.
