A vehicle just arrived at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek with 17 bullet holes in the passenger side window.

Crime scene tape has been placed around the vehicle, and although there appears to be a possible shooting victim since they’re at the hospital, the extend of the person’s injuries are unknown at this time.

Claycord.com has received several reports of gunshots heard in the area of Oak Grove & Ygnacio Valley Rd. in Walnut Creek, but as of this time, no crime scene has been established.

We will keep you updated when we learn more.

UPDATE, 9:55pmWalnut Creek PD advising delays westbound Ygnacio Valley Rd. just east of Oak Grove Rd. due to this shooting investigation. We’re hearing traffic is back up from Oak Grove to Alberta Way in Concord. 

UPDATE, 10:33pm: Westbound Ygnacio Valley Rd. is now closed at Cowell Rd. in Concord due to a shooting investigation at Ygnacio & Oak Grove in Walnut Creek. If you’re headed to Walnut Creek, please turn right on Cowell and left on Treat Blvd.

Thank you “K” @47 for setting the record straight. A very close friend of mine was there today, too, and posted a video clip on her Facebook page scanning the crowd.and the person performing Pharrell Williams’ song “Happy” (my friend commented it was Gladys Knight’s older brother). Besides Gladys Knight, the O’Jays were on the bill and it looked like those 2 attracted a fair number of Boomers.

It was a gorgeous day, the crowd looked very relaxed and to imply that the car incident was connected to a bunch of pent-up thugs who were unleashed after the concert is horse pucky.

You can refuse to look at the facts in this and call everyone who can put two and two together a racist, if that makes you feel better; but, you can’t honestly say you don’t see a correlation here… Gladys Night did it!

Really Good Facts May 25, 2014 at 11:55 PM

We all really believe it was Gladys Night..her beautiful and soulful voice would drive anyone to go out and shoot someone.

What difference, at this point, does it make?!!!

Let’s all ignore the giant pink elephant in the room.

@Me 2016 Your panties are really in a twist.

Thanks #1. The shooter wore a mask & used a semiautomatic weapon. I seriously doubt he was inspired by the music performed at this concert. Sounds like premeditation to me.

All free concerts should be held in Oakland, or Richmond!

I count 15 holes. Weirdly uniform shot placement. Be hard to do on purpose.

Censor much?

K ,exactly what I was thinking.
Starts shooting then gets out to shoot them at close range

never fails May 26, 2014 at 8:47 AM

KBLX has the Stone Soul picnic the same time every year and I have never heard of any problems. It was not a RAP concert! This could have been a case of road rage for what anyone knows at this point. Crime happens everywhere by All races of people and Contra Costa County is not immune from that. I can always expect to see the racist comments anytime a crime such as this occurs. It is pretty sad but it just illustrates that racism is still alive and well.

Great hold it in Oakland or Richmond. I hear their hospitals have lots of experience with gun shot victims.

Anonymous #14, I agree 100%.

Walnut Creek is becoming another ghetto!
Why does everyone think the shooter was even at the concert?
He was probably traveling from Pittsburg to Oakland (profiling here) and had a road rage incident with this Mercedes or was jealous.
Maybe it was a hired hit man…
Who knows.
It can happen anywhere people.
Let it go and just be aware of how you drive.

Updates??? May 27, 2014 at 12:49 PM

Why has this story gone stale? I’m surprised at no follow up with something that seems serious for the the area. It’s not everyday someone is ambushed on YV Road…Mayor?

There’s an update at the top of the page.
