Woman Killed, Man Injured in Late-Night Vallejo Shooting, Police Seek InformationSource: Google Street View

Chaos erupted in Vallejo as a late-night shooting claimed the life of a woman and left a man nursing his injuries, according to local police. The Vallejo Police Department reported to CBS News San Francisco that the incident took place on the 2900 block of Redwood Parkway, with officers arriving at the scene around 11:04 p.m. on Saturday after receiving a call about the shooting.

When they got there, they discovered a harrowing scene: a man and woman, each struck by gunfire. Police officers at the scene provided aid to the victims until medics arrived, who pronounced the woman dead right there. The male victim was transported to the hospital with injuries not expected to lead to death, according to a CBS News San Francisco report.

The search for answers is now in full swing as Vallejo homicide detectives have taken over the investigation. The driving force behind the violence and the immediate circumstances preceding that fatal moment are still being pieced together by the authorities. NBC Bay Area noted that anyone with valuable information is encouraged to contact the detectives handling the case.

The woman's identity will remain under wraps until officials can notify her next-of-kin, as reported by police statements. Meanwhile, detectives Carpenter and Phillips are urging the community's aid, inviting tips that could shed light on this violent event, and providing contact information to the public in a report by NBC Bay Area.
