On Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at 9:30 PM, the Antioch Police Department was dispatched to Bryan Avenue near Beasley Avenue for a victim of a shooting. Upon arrival officers contacted a 22-year-old male, Antioch resident suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to an area hospital where he is being treated and expected to recover from his injuries.

It was learned that the victim was standing next to a vehicle speaking with a friend, who was in the car when a vehicle drove by, stopped and an occupant confronted the victim. The suspect asked the victim if he was in a gang and when the victim denied being in the gang, the suspect began shooting at him. The suspect then fled the area. No other parties were injured as a result of the shooting.

An unrelated parked car and a home in the proximity were struck by stray rounds of gunfire.
