Two Shot in Antioch

By Lieutenant Pat Welch, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau

On Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at 7:45 p.m., a detective from the Antioch Police Department was flagged down by two subjects standing next to a stopped vehicle at the intersection of Wilbur Avenue and A Street in Antioch.

Both victims, a 19 year old Antioch resident and a 47 year old Pittsburg resident, had apparent gunshot wounds and were yelling for assistance. The vehicle they were standing near also had several bullet holes in it.

The shooting did not occur at this location and both victims were somewhat uncooperative. They were both transported by ambulance to local hospitals with non life threatening wounds.

The investigation is ongoing and the location of the actual shooting is unknown at this time.

    I was jogging by when this happened. I don’t think the younger guy even knew he was shot because he didn’t say a word. I couldn’t have been far from the intersection. When I was running I saw them get out of the car and start trying to stop cars and were running around the area, but before I Gould get my phone out I saw the officer turn his lights on.
    The thing that bothered me the most is that this didn’t even bother me. It’s becoming way too commonplace!
