Two Men Shot in Antioch Tuesday Night

By Lieutenant Pat Welch, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau

On Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 7:18 p.m., the Antioch Police Department dispatch received a call of a shooting that had just occurred on Lemontree Way. As officers arrived on scene they located a 31-year-old Antioch man suffering from a bullet wound. As police were arriving on scene other witnesses reported the shooting actually occurred in the parking lot of a shopping center at 1118 Sycamore Drive in Antioch.

Witnesses at that location stated there were several black male adults in some sort of altercation in the lot just prior to several shots being fired. Witnesses also stated they thought two people may have been shot and one fled in a vehicle that had left the scene.

As Antioch dispatch was checking with local hospitals, they were notified a second gunshot victim, a 24-year-old Antioch man, had been brought into the emergency room. Neither victim’s wounds were life threatening. The investigation is ongoing and nothing else is being released at this time.
