Resident Chases, Shoots at Thieves

On February 9 just before 10 a.m.  Antioch police received a call of a man chasing another person down the street in the 2000 block of Cambridge Drive while firing a gun.

While en route officers learned that a victim had been confronted by two people who had just forced their way into his residence. He retrieved his handgun and chased them out of his residence. He continued to chase one of them down the street while the other returned to the victim’s residence and stole the victim’s vehicle. The thief then drove past the victim, slowed and allowed his partner to get in. They both fled the neighborhood.

While chasing the subject, the victim fired one round into the ground, attempting to scare the person into stopping and giving up. No one was injured and the only loss was the victim’s vehicle.
