The suspect in custody is loaded on a gurney into an ambulance before being transported to a local hospital.

On Sunday, February 11, 2018, at approximately 2:36 pm, CHP officers notified Antioch Police Dispatch they were in pursuit of an armed carjacking vehicle out of Oakland on the city streets of Antioch. The pursuit came to an end when the suspect, a 35-year-old Antioch resident, pulled into the driveway of a residence in the 4500 block of Elkhorn Way near Deerfield Drive.

The suspect would not exit the vehicle and did not comply with commands given by officers on scene. Less than lethal rounds were fired into the vehicle, blowing out the windows and an Antioch PD canine was deployed. The suspect was taken into custody without further incident. There were no injuries to officers or residents in the area. Oakland PD came to the scene and took over the investigation.

According to witnesses the man appeared to be Hispanic. But, his identity has not yet been released.
