Richmond police are trying to figure out who shot and killed a 73-year-old man while he was driving. The bullet struck Arthur Lee Clark in the head shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday, but he managed to drive a mile before crashing into a boathouse. His passenger was not hurt. Police say Clark's actions were heroic because he appeared to have kept driving after the shooting to get his passenger as far from danger as possible. No arrests have been made. Relatives say Clark was a retired San Francisco bus driver who had been caring for his ailing wife until she died of kidney failure two weeks ago. The family now must plan another funeral.
