Arrest for Brandishing Gun at Deer Valley High

On Jan. 18 at 1:47 p.m. Antioch officers responded to Deer Valley High School after a parent called stating a person had just pointed a handgun at him. The person made a verbal threat while walking towards him.

The parent drove away from the person and contacted a DVHS staff member in the lot who called police. The parent provided a description of the person and another person seen walking with him through the campus and in the direction of Lone Tree Way.

Officers located the two people – Jashowndre Upshaw, 20, and Myrick Rucker, 19 – near Taco Bell in the Deer Valley Plaza. During further investigation, two loaded handguns were located in a vehicle near where the two men were contacted.

Both were identified as the involved persons and Upshaw was identified as the one who pointed the handgun at the victim. Upshaw was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility. Rucker was released from Antioch PD pending further investigation.

It was determined that neither are Deer Valley High School students. All involved parties involved are adults and no students were injured or threatened.
