On August 19, 2018 at 3:27 am, Antioch Police patrol officers were dispatched to an apartment complex in the 2200 block of San Jose Drive for a shooting where two people were shot in the parking lot. Officers located 19-year-old Anthony Singh in his vehicle suffering from fatal gunshot wounds. A second male, whose identity being withheld for safety reasons, was located suffering from non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

Video was located at a gas station on Somersville Road in Antioch during the investigation. The video depicts a late model silver Dodge Charger with black racing stripes. The video also shows a male suspect who hides behind the Charger as Singh’s vehicle passes the gas station. The male enters the car, shuts off his lights and follows Singh to the murder scene.
