Williams drive-by wounds 3 in legs
Two men and a boy were shot in the legs in a weekend drive-by in Williams, according to the Williams Police Department.
The victims, ages 14, 21 and 26, were walking down the street around 10:15 p.m. Saturday when a vehicle drove by and stopped near the trio in the 400 block of 11th Street.
According to their accounts, one of the occupants of the vehicle shouted a possible gang-related statement, then shot several rounds from an unknown-type handgun.
The vehicle drove away east on E. Police said it was unknown whether the driver or the passenger of the gray or silver 4-door Cadillac Deville fired the shots.
The victims described the assailants as two, possibly three, males. The driver was said to be wearing a blue baseball cap. The Cadillac is estimated to be a 2000 to 2002 model, with wire rims and tinted rear windows.
All three victims were shot in the legs and transported to the Colusa Regional Medical Center, where they were treated, police said. They were all released Sunday.
The names were not released by police.
"At this point, the police department is still investigating a possible motive," Lt. Jim Saso said in a prepared statement. "The victims, two of them brothers, do not appear to be currently associated with any street gang activity," he said.
Saso said the surrounding areas were checked with the assistance of the Colusa County Sheriff's Department, the Colusa Police Department and the California Highway Patrol, but turned up no results.
Woodland and Davis police departments were also assisting, but the vehicle had not been located as of late Monday, Saso said.
The police are urging anyone with information regarding the shooting to call the department at 473-2661.
