A man and a 16-year-old boy were injured in a drive-by shooting in northwest Vallejo on Wednesday night, a police lieutenant said.
The shooting happened around 9:50 p.m. in the 300 block of BW Williams Drive, Vallejo police Lt. Herman Robinson said.
The 26-year-old man was shot several times in the left leg as he was strapping two young children into safety seats and the teen was struck in the right thigh as he was entering the right front passenger seat, Robinson said. The young children were not injured.
Bullets also struck a residence, a car in the driveway and another vehicle parked in front. No one inside the house was injured, Robinson said.
The man and teen were taken in private vehicles to Sutter Solano Medical Center and hospital employees then informed police they had received two gunshot victims, Robinson said.
Police recovered up to a dozen shell casings in the street, he said.
The shooting suspects fled in a Dodge Charger or Magnum last seen driving south on BW Williams Drive, Robinson said.
A 22-year-old Vallejo man was shot in the leg around 3 a.m. Wednesday on Springs Road in Vallejo, Robinson said. His injuries were not life-threatening and he was taken to North Bay Medical Center, Robinson said.
