On Monday morning, at approximately 7:11 AM, Antioch Police Officers responded to a report

of a shooting at the Quik Stop Market at 2760 W. Tregallas Road at the corner of Lone Tree Way. The officers arrived to find an adult female victim deceased from an apparent gunshot wound.

A short time later, the male suspect in this case, a 34-year-old Antioch resident, was taken into custody without incident in front of the Antioch Police Department. According to a VIP who heard the police call, the suspect turned himself in and according to Mike Burkholder of eastcountoday.net, the suspect drove himself to the police facility. According to the team from Channel 2 News the car was a dark blue or grey Dodge Charger, being driven by a Hispanic or white male with a black semi-automatic weapon. Burkholder, who saw the car at the police facility, confirmed the suspect’s vehicle was grey.

As of 8:30 AM, the body of the 27-year-old Antioch victim was believed to still be inside the store.

A close friend of the store owner, who owns another convenience store in Antioch, showed up on scene and was told by the police that the employees are OK. But one clerk was shot in the arm. They also said the owner of the store, who was also on the scene at that time is OK.

According to a neighbor of the clerk, in an on-the scene Channel 2 TV News interview by Anchor/Reporter Brian Flores, it was a domestic dispute and he “stepped in to help the lady.”

“The woman was shot by her partner,” the neighbor also stated.

A second victim, a 27-year-old adult male Antioch resident, believed to be the clerk, was also on-scene, when police arrived, suffering from a gunshot wound. This second victim was transported to a local area hospital where he is currently being treated for his injuries.

This case is currently being investigated by the Antioch Police Department Investigations Bureau. The police are in the preliminary stages of this case, and no further information will be released at this time.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call Detective Jason Vanderpool with the Antioch Police Department at (925) 779-6988. You may also text a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using key word ANTIOCH.
