On Tuesday, September 13, 2016 at approximately 3:17 p.m., Officers from the Antioch Police Department located a stolen Mercedez parked on Plymouth Lane at Hillcrest Avenue, with a subject getting into the vehicle. That subject was later identified as Ryan Kary (27 years old) out of Lafayette.

Officers converged on the vehicle and attempted to take Kary into custody. While ordering Kary

out of the car, he put the car in reverse and struck an Officer who was out of his vehicle. The Officer drew his firearm and fired shots into the vehicle. With the Mercedez now backed into the Officer’s vehicle, Kary indicated he was giving up.

Kary was pulled from the vehicle and further resisted being taken into custody. After a brief struggle Kary was taken into custody without further incident. Kary was treated and released on scene for minor injuries sustained during his struggle with officers. The Officer struck by the vehicle Kary was driving showed no immediate sign of injury. Nobody was struck by the gunshots.

Kary will be booked into the Contra Costa County Jail on charges to include Auto Theft and Assault with a Deadly Weapon on an Officer.

This case is still under investigation. No further information will be released at this time. Anybody having information related to this incident is encouraged to contact Det. Gonzalez at
