On Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at approximately 4:10 PM, Antioch Police Department officers responded to a report of a shooting at an apartment complex in the 600 block of Wilbur Avenue. The victims of the shooting were gone when police arrived on scene but eventually located some distance away. The victims reported being shot at while they were driving into the apartment complex on Wilbur Avenue by a known responsible.
None of the three adult female victims, two 23-year-old Antioch residents and a 23-year-old Pittsburg resident, were injured by any of the gunfire, but the vehicle they were travelling in was struck several times.
During the investigation into the incident, information was developed that helped to identify Jamel Lavone Williams, a 25-year-old Bay Point resident, as the suspect.
Approximately two weeks later, on Monday, August 4, 2014, Williams was located by the Federal Marshall’s Fugitive Apprehension Team in the city of Concord. Williams was arrested as a Parolee at Large, as well as for his involvement in this case. He was taken to the Contra Costa County Detention Facility in Martinez on his arrest warrant as well as charges of PC 245(A)(2) – Assault with a deadly weapon (firearm).
The case is currently being prepared for filing with the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office.
