Emeryville PD is reporting several shots were fired in the Pak N Save parking lot today at about 1:24 pm. A confrontation between the occupants of two vehicles led to two men in a black Lexus getting out and begin shooting at another vehicle described as a gold Mercedes. It was unclear if the occupant(s) of the other vehicle returned fire. Police reported that 22 casings have been recovered from the scene and evidence markers could be seen strewn around the entrance near San Pablo Avenue.

  1. I guess all we have left is Target with their over bloated prices but you shouldn’t need to update your life insurance when you go grocery shopping.

  2. I just drove by this intertersection yesterday and had a fantasy of black and white being torn down, followed by the pakn’save. That corner is such an eye sore and menace to the rest of the neighborhood. I realized two years ago that walking in that parking lot is a matter of taking your life into your hands.

    Is our great leader, John Bauters going to swoop in?… Wait, is that the sound of crickets chirping?
