A newspaper deliveryman was shot in the leg while driving on Interstate Highway 80 near the Golden Gate Fields racetrack in Albany early
this morning, police said. The man was shot at about 4:30 a.m. on eastbound I-80, Albany police said. After the shooting, the man continued driving and went to a friend’s house in Richmond where he called police, Richmond police Sgt. Bisa French said. Richmond police took the initial report and then called Albany police for assistance in determining where the shooting had happened, Albany police said. The California Highway Patrol shut down the highway for a short time while police searched for shell casings, CHP Officer Ralph Caggiano
said. Richmond police initially told Albany police that they would be handling the investigation, Albany police said. But later this morning,
Richmond police handed the investigation over to Albany since the shooting appeared to have happened in that department’s jurisdiction, Albany police said. Albany police said this morning they were still waiting for Richmond to pass along the report from the initial investigation.
