Orinda Police are continuing to investigate a robbery and shooting that occurred Monday night.
At about 9:09 PM, police were dispatched to a medical call at a residence on the first block of Claremont Avenue. A woman was apparently shot in front of her house during an armed robbery by two suspects who were said to be wearing “Halloween style masks.”

A male victim, who was pistol-whipped, was treated at a hospital and later released. Both victims are Orinda residents. The suspects fled on foot with the victims’ personal property.
Officers, assisted by a police K-9 and a helicopter, conducted a search for the suspects. They were not located.
