RICHMOND, Calif. β€” Someone apparently shot out the window of a Richmond police patrol car just outside the department's headquarters this morning, shattering the back window of the cruiser but not injuring the officer driving the vehicle, officials said.

The mystery shot occurred as a patrol officer was pulling out of the driveway of the new police headquarters at 1689 Regatta Blvd. around 7:40 a.m., said Lt. Mark Gagan. It comes one day after the department rolled out SWAT teams because of what officers call an escalating gang war on this East Bay city's streets. So far this week, 11 people have been shot, three of them fatally.
