San Rafael, CA – Just after midnight, on Saturday, April 2, 2022, The San Rafael Police Department began receiving 9-1-1 calls about a shooting in the 700 block of B Street between First Street and Second Street. Witnesses calling our communications center reported multiple shots fired.
Additional calls were received during the response where witnesses observed two separate vehicles fleeing the area of the 7-Eleven convenience store at B Street and First Street.
Officer arrived within seconds and were unable to locate any involved persons. It appeared all involved persons had fled the scene.
During the investigation into what occurred, it was determined that there had been a physical fight between two groups of subjects just before the shooting. During the fight, suspects from each group escalated the incident when they began shooting at each other.

It is unknown, at this time, if anyone was shot or injured in the incident since no victims have come forward. SRPD Detectives remain in contact with area hospitals.
This appears to be an isolated incident between two groups of people. There is no outstanding threat to the public. This is an unfortunate occurrence in San Rafael, and detectives are working diligently to identify and arrest those responsible.
