On Saturday, January 21, 2016 at 3:10 a.m., Antioch Police Dispatch received multiple reports of the sound of gun shots in the 900 block of Badger Pass Way. One caller advised of a van driving away from a house at a high rate of speed. Officers located the van driving away from the location and a traffic stop was conducted.

The officers noticed numerous bullet holes in the van and the passenger was bleeding from an apparent injury to his head. Paramedics were called to the location of the traffic stop and it was determined that this injury was not a gunshot wound.

Officers located approximately 10 pounds of fresh marijuana in the van along with some indoor

marijuana grow equipment. Officers went back to the original location that they had been dispatched to and noticed that the roll up garage door had been forced open from the inside out as if a vehicle drove through the metal door. There were additional bullet holes going through the

walls into the living area of the house. The officers determined that this house had been converted into an indoor marijuana cultivation. It was also determined that the van was the same

vehicle that had driven through the garage door.

The Antioch Police Department Special Operations Detectives were called out to the location. The detectives served a search warrant on the house. The detectives found a sophisticated marijuana cultivation operation to include over 300 mature marijuana plants. The evidence was collected and the house was boarded up.

The passenger was transported to an area hospital to be treated. He was treated for his injuries, which were determined to be non life threatening.

Both the driver, Chun Li (34 years old) and the passenger, Jianhong Li (37 years old) were arrested and booked into the county jail for marijuana cultivation.

This incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to contact Detective Hoffman at (925) 779-6931.
