    No way. Antioch is the safest city in the east bay. So safe we stopped public transmission of police scanners because there’s no crime in Antioch.

  2. Frederick Rouse says:

    Has the suspect been caught?

  3. Just a thought says:

    The suspect died. He was shot – got in his car and took off

    Thank goodness the police officer was around. I am glad he got him. Way to go APD. Poor hard working innocent man. I feel for his family. The thug that beat and shot the innocent man had a rap sheet.
