A man who was shot and killed in Richmond on Wednesday night, Nov. 28, has been identified by the Contra Costa County coroner's office as 34-year-old Suisun City resident Ranaye Cross.
According to a Richmond Police Department report, officers responded to a report of a shooting in the 2800 block of McBryde Avenue at 10:20 p.m. Wednesday, Richmond police Lt. Bisa French said.
When they arrived, they found Cross suffering from at least one gunshot wound.
According to the report, investigators believe the suspect approached Cross on foot and shot him, but may have fled in a vehicle. The motive for the shooting remains under investigation but it does not appear to have been gang-related, French said.
The killing marked Richmond's 18th homicide this year, according to police.
