The robbery and shooting took place in the 1600 block of Derby Street

A man was shot and sustained non-life-threatening injuries in a home invasion robbery in the 1600 block of Derby Street in Berkeley at 3 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22. The suspect fled and is still at large.

The home invasion was not random, according to Lt. Kevin Schofield of the Berkeley Police Department. “We believe the suspect targeted these people specifically,” he said.

A short time after the suspect left the scene of the crime, a BPD officer spotted the getaway car and the suspect was pursued to Richmond where he crashed his car and escaped on foot.

The man who was shot was transfered to hospital and is in stable condition.

“This is an active investigation classified as a home invasion robbery and assault with a firearm,” said Schofield.
