Shooting Near Antioch High

School Locked Down

By Sergeant T. Morefield, Field Services, Antioch Police Department

On Friday, March 23, 2012 at approximately 1:54 p.m., officers responded to a report of shots fired in the area of Antioch High School at 700 W. 18th Street. As officers arrived on scene, it was quickly discovered that the shooting actually occurred on West 16th Street, almost two blocks away from the school. However, due to the close proximity of the incident to the High School and an unknown direction of flight of the responsible, restricted access procedures were initiated at Antioch High School.

It would later be determined that the responsible fled the scene in a vehicle in the opposite direction of the high school, so the school district was notified and the restricted access procedure was lifted. There is no indication that any Antioch High School students were involved in this incident. There were no reported injuries however a broken window was located at the school. The case is still under investigation.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call the Antioch Police Department at (925) 778-2441.
