BRENTWOOD -- Police have released sketches of two people wanted in connection with a Jan. 14 shooting that injured four teenagers who may have been unknowingly wearing a brand of shoes affiliated with a street gang.
The teens were standing on a sidewalk in front of a home in the 1100 block of Breton Drive about 6 p.m. when a car with three to four men inside drove up to them, police said.
The men inside the car exchanged words with the group of boys -- including noting that "gang members like to wear those" shoes, referring to the Nike Cortez shoes the boys were wearing, according to KTVU-TV. The car then pulled away, made a U-turn, then someone inside the car fired about five shots at the group of boys, police said.
All four teens sustained wounds that were not life-threatening and were taken to a hospital for treatment. Police later said they did not believe that any of the victims were gang members.
The suspects' vehicle was described as a white or light-colored, late model, four-door Honda or Toyota. The weapon was described as a chrome or silver .22-caliber revolver, but no bullet casings were found at the scene, police said.
The driver was described as a white male, 18 to 25 years old, with blond hair. The right rear passenger was described as a Hispanic male, about 18 to 25 years old.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Brentwood Police at 925-634-6911. Ask for Detective George Aguirre or Detective Peter Folena.
