Investigation Begins in Antioch Police Officer Involved Shooting, Monday Morning

Monday, July 28th, 2014

By Captain Leonard Orman, Antioch Police Department

This morning, Monday, July 28, 2014, our officers were dispatched to Folsom Dr. regarding a rifle that had been found in the street. When an officer arrived, he eventually had an encounter with a male subject. The officer attempted to detain the male who fled from him into an open garage. At some point during the attempted detention, the officer fired his sidearm striking the male several times. The scene was eventually secured and the male was flown by helicopter to a hospital. Although he was responsive when removed from the scene, his prognosis is unknown at this time. The officer, who is a veteran, was not injured.

We have invoked the Officer Involved Critical Incident Protocol. This case will be investigated cooperatively with the CCC DA’s Officer, the CCC County Crime Lab and the Antioch Police Department.

No further details will be released at this time. As this investigation develops we look forward to providing further information at that time.
