Antioch Man Accidentally Shoots, Kills Younger Brother, Arrested

By Acting Lt. Diane Aguinaga, Antioch Police Investigations Bureau

On Saturday, April 28, 2012 at 6:39 p.m. Antioch police received a 911 call from a 41-year-old man in the 2300 block of Cambridge Drive stating that he had accidentally shot his brother. Antioch police, along with fire and ambulance, responded to find a 36-year-old male suffering from a single gunshot wound.

He was declared dead on scene. It appears that the 36-year-old came to his brother’s home to show him a newly obtained gun. While both brothers were looking at the gun, it went off, striking and killing the 36-year-old.

Later that night, the 41-year-old brother, George Enriquez, born 12-16-71, was arrested for involuntary manslaughter and illegal possession of an assault weapon. He was sent to the Martinez Detention Facility and released on bail on Sunday, April 29.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Desmond Bittner at (925)779-6939.
