PITTSBURG -- Two men were shot near a city park late Tuesday night, and police were looking for those responsible.
Neither of the men suffered life-threatening wounds in the shooting, which Pittsburg police Capt. Ron Raman said happened at 10:30 p.m. near Highland Ranch Park off Buchanan Road. Both victims were taken to a hospital in a vehicle driven by a third man who was with them.
The three men were at the park when a dispute started between them and another group there, Raman said. Police are still investigating what led to the confrontation.
One of the shooting victims was wounded in his upper left thigh, and the other was shot in his lower right leg, Raman said. The other man with them suffered a minor cut in a tussle with the other group and was OK.
Shell casings were found at the scene, and Raman said police were investigating city surveillance tape of the park and asking the public to submit any video that may have been taken privately. Anyone with information is urged to call the Pittsburg Police Department at 925-252-4980 or 925-252-4151.
