A man was injured in a shooting in San Rafael on Friday night, a police sergeant said today. The shooting was reported at about 8:05 p.m. by a police officer who was in the area of Larkspur and Alto streets and heard a gunshot, San Rafael police Sgt. Mike Vergara said. More officers arrived and found the victim, who had suffered a gunshot wound to his foot. He is expected to survive, Vergara said. The victim saw the male suspect leaving the area on foot, but he was not found in a subsequent search by police, who were assisted by Marin County sheriff’s deputies, and officers from the California Highway Patrol and Twin Cities and Novato police departments. Officers found a spent bullet casing on Larkspur Street near Canal Street, but the weapon was not found. Police are not releasing a description of the suspect because the descriptions provided by the victim and a witness were vague and contradictory, according to Vergara. The motive for the shooting is under investigation, he said.
