Police are searching for a man wanted in connection with a shooting this morning in Danville. The victim, an unidentified 52-year-old man, was shot once in the chest and is expected to survive, according to the Danville Police Department.
The shooting is said to have occurred in the 700 block of El Pintado Road at 10:17 a.m. Police said the victim and 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 weighs about 175 pounds. He was wearing a dark long-sleeved shirt and dark jeans.
