Lawrence Gadlin, 23, of Berkeley was one of three men killed in a drive-by shooting Thursday night in north Richmond.

The Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office is calling the triple murder the unincorporated community’s deadliest day in more than a decade, according to a report this morning in the Contra Costa Times.

Also killed in the shooting, which happened at about 9 p.m. in the 1700 block of Truman Street, were Gerald Jackson Jr., 34, of Richmond and Tony Albert, 51, of North Richmond. A fourth man was wounded but has since been released from the hospital.

The police are investigating whether the homicides were gang-related and calling on the public for information relating to the crime.
