Woman shot by stray bullet, three teens arrested in Antioch, Sunday morning

By Acting Sergeant John Fortner, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau

On Sunday, November 2, 2014, at 11:43 AM, Antioch Police responded to the intersection of West 18th and A Streets on the report of several gunshots heard in the area. Upon arrival officers located an adult female who had in fact been shot.

Witnesses reported to officers that a group of males were seen shooting at another group of males at the southeast corner of the intersection. A female victim who was standing across the intersection from the group was struck by a single gunshot. The female victim did not appear to be a part of either group.

Witnesses reported that a group of males ran eastbound on East 18th Street as the other group ran southbound on A Street. An area search was conducted and officers contacted a group of male subjects a short distance away from the scene. This group was determined to be the targets of the suspects who fled eastbound on East 18th Street, and they did not sustain any injuries.

The investigation led officers to make a vehicle stop in the area of Sunset Lane and Davison Drive. Consequently, one 17-year-old juvenile and two adult male suspects, 19-year-old Daniel Washington of Bay Point and 18-year-old Karmani Ely of Antioch, were taken into custody.

The female victim was transported to a local hospital with non life threatening injuries.

The investigation into this incident is on-going.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Vanderpool at (925) 779-6988. You may also text-a-tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using the key word ANTIOCH.
