Aerial video from the scene showed multiple police units at the complex and police tape cordoning off at least one of the residences at the complex. 

An adult male suspect was outstanding but police provided no additional information on the suspect or motive. The victims were not immediately identified. Authorities are asking the publish for help with any surveillance camera video that might provide police with information.

"Always looking for cameras. Always looking for cameras and witnesses," said Pleasant Hill police Capt. Matt Kristic. "That's the wonderful thing now, there are so many cameras, even residential cameras. It used to just be businesses. Now we look for residential cameras to help the investigation." 

On Wednesday, police confirmed that the second person injured in the shooting died and identified both men who were killed. Police also said that the shooting was the result of an attempted robbery of a cannabis worker that ended in gunfire.

Police urged anyone with information about the shooting to contact investigators at (925) 288-4630.
