Passersby scattered after a flurry of gunfire broke out in the 3100 block of Oak Road in Walnut Creek Friday, wounding one person and sparking reports of a possible running gun battle between different factions in separate cars.
The incident, reported at 1:28 p.m., triggered a swarm of reports from witnesses who all reported seeing a different chain of events.
Medical personnel assisted a person suffering an apparent gunshot wound to the hip shortly after the incident was reported. That victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
Condition information was not available.
Several witnesses said the victim was hit as they were leaving the parking lot of a Subway and 7-Eleven store on Oak Road. That person may have driven/been driven a distance away before calling for help.
Car and suspect descriptions were varied but we believe police are looking for a gold, older model SUV with at least three Hispanic or Pacific Islander males aboard.
