Roseville police say the 51-year-old victim told officers he was driving south on Rice Street and was stopped at a red light when a person in a black SUV pulled up, displayed a handgun, pointed it at the victim and shot through the door, hitting the victim in the thigh and arm.

The suspect is described as a Black man, between 25 and 30 years old, who was wearing golden glasses wth short twists or dreadlocks under a black stocking cap, per the victim’s account to police.
