Little is known about what callers say was a violent street crime in downtown Walnut Creek Sunday night, a victim shot after two men demanded his watch near Union Bank on Mt. Diablo Boulevard.
Walnut Creek Police Lt. Tracy Reese said investigators are currently working through the crime, which occurred at around 9:50 p.m. Sunday and came to police attention moments later after the victim was dropped off at Kaiser Hospital on S. Main Street.
The unidentified victim was later transferred John Muir Medical Center, Reese said, where he was treated for the minor gunshot wound and later released.
The suspects were described only as two black male adults in their early 30s. It was not immediately known if they fled the area on foot or by car. Officers reportedly found a shell casing while processing the scene for evidence Sunday night.
Street robberies of this type are not totally unheard of in the 24/680, with thieves stealing valuable timepieces from their owners in Danville and attempting to rob a Walnut Creek store specializing in antique timepieces in April, 2017.
