By Sergeant D. Bittner #3252, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau

On Sunday, May 5, 2013 at approximately 8:29 p.m., the Antioch Police Department responded to a shooting that occurred in the area of D Street near W. 19th Street. Upon our arrival, we located a 17-year-old male suffering from a single gunshot wound to his left arm. The 17-year-old male was transported to a local hospital and is currently in stable condition.

A 12-year-old female victim and an 11-year-old male victim were also located. Both victims were sitting in a vehicle that was parked near the location of the shooting. A stray bullet entered the driver window of the parked vehicle. Neither the girl nor the 11-year-old boy were struck by the stray bullet; however they both sustained minor cuts on their arms and hands from broken window glass. Both were treated for their injuries at the scene.

The incident is still under investigation at this time.
