Another 19-Year-Old Man Shot in Antioch

By Sgt. Tom Fuhrmann, Antioch Police Field Services Division

On Tuesday, August 14, 2012 at approximately 7:44 p.m., the Antioch Police Department received calls of a large fight in the 700 block of L Street and then a report of shots being fired and a subject down. Upon arrival, officers found a 19-year-old man down in the street with several gunshot wounds. It is unclear at this time who shot the victim or what his level of involvement in the fight was when he was shot.

At the time of the shooting, a Tri Delta Transit bus was northbound on L Street without any passengers on board. The bus was subsequently struck by several bullets, as well.

The 19 year old victim, Antioch resident, was transported to an area hospital where he was treated for his wounds, which were non-life threatening, and subsequently released.
