College student shot and killed in Richmond 

Richmond police say a 22-year-old community college student was shot and killed inside a parked vehicle as he prepared to head to class.

The shooting occurred a little before 7 p.m. Monday. Lt. Bisa French says the victim, Edwin Martinez, was in the vehicle with his sister when an unidentified gunman approached on foot.

The shooter was chasing and firing at a fleeing car. He apparently turned to Martinez's vehicle and opened fire after giving up on the pursuit.

French says Martinez's sister then gunned the car and drove away. She was not injured. Martinez, a student at Contra Costa Community College in San Pablo, died at the scene.

The shooter got away. Police have not made any arrests
