Richmond police are investigating a shooting Wednesday that left a 37-year-old Emeryville man dead and more than 40 shell casings at the scene.
Officers responded at about 12:25 p.m. Wednesday to an activation of its ShotSpotter gunshot detection system technology in the 3000 block of Shane Drive and received multiple calls shortly afterward about someone having been shot, police said.
Officers found the victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene. He has been identified by the Contra Costa County coroner’s office as Aaron Burrell.
Richmond police have released the audio from the ShotSpotter system that captured the dozens of rounds of gunfire.
