Police Investigating Shooting Death of 28-Year-Old Richmond Man

Pierre Andre Reddrick Jr. was driven by two people to Kaiser Permanente Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries.

Police are investigating whether the shooting death of a 28-year-old man is related to the second shooting of a 71-year-old man who reported a burglary at his Richmond home early this morning, a police spokeswoman said.
Police responded around 1 a.m. to a ShotSpotter activation in the 1300 block of Coalinga Avenue where a resident had also reported a burglary, according to Richmond police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov.
Officers arrived to find the resident suffering from gunshot wounds to the leg in front of a building that houses a home and a plumbing business, Abetkov said.
The man was airlifted to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, where he was listed in stable condition this morning, according to Abetkov. A short time later, a gunshot victim arrived at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, located about a mile from the site of the shooting on Coalinga Avenue.
That victim succumbed to his injuries at the hospital. He has been identified as Pierre Andre Reddrick Jr. of Richmond, a Contra Costa County coroner's deputy said. Two people who drove him to the hospital have been detained for questioning, Abetkov said.
Police are investigating whether Reddrick was involved in the shooting and reported burglary at the home and business on Coalinga Street, Abetkov said.
"We're still not sure, we're talking to witnesses," she said.

Will there ever be a day when the patch is able to report what happened correctly? How can you take a press release or a story from another source and still not be able to add a short intro correct. The victim was transported to John Muir in Walnut creek. The suspect was driven to kaiser richmond. The only reason to read the patch any longer is just so I can get a good laugh over how bad it has become. Just pull the plug if your not going to put out the effort to do it correctly.
