Wednesday Morning UPDATE: Police Pursuit In Concord, Pleasant Hill


The Sheriff’s STARR1 helicopter is currently assisting at least 3 law enforcement agencies in the vehicle and now foot pursuit of a lone male suspect.

We believe this may have originated in Pittsburg, but haven’t been able to confirm that. The suspect was last seen on foot, in the area near the northern end of Sunvalley Mall.

Please avoid the area.


Update, Tuesday 6:10 p.m.: The suspect ran into the Nordstrom Rack store and may be hiding in a bathroom or the ceiling. The store is being evacuated. We’re also getting reports the the Safeway store, which is immediately next door, was also evacuated.

Update, Tuesday 6:15 p.m.: It does appear that the suspect is now hiding in the ceiling. There is access to the roof, so STARR1 is orbiting the scene in order to continuously observe.

Update, Tuesday 6:30 p.m.: Both stores have been completely evacuated. Officers on scene are continuing to hold the perimeter and forming a plan of action. K9 and drone Officers are standing by.

Update, Tuesday 8 p.m.: After another switch of helicopters back to STARR1, who ultimately had to leave, they are now using drones in their place. Specially trained and equipped officers are in a very tight perimeter around the building. Negotiators are trying to establish contact with the suspect.

Update, Wednesday 12 a.m.: As of midnight, the incident is still ongoing. About 6 hours have elapsed. Negotiators are still trying to establish contact with the suspect.

Update, Wednesday morning: Police are still on scene. Safeway and Nordstrom are both closed. Police still have not contacted the suspect.

Just drove by 15 minutes ago. Everything was blocked around the Rack and Safeway. Crime scene tape up. More police cars and police than I’ve ever seen. Someone there said there was a shooting. That’s not confirmed. Too dangerous to stick around.

@Krissy…Breaking what?…breaking his brakes? Was he spinning longitudinally or laterally or spinning around like a top?

Amy September 27, 2022 - 9:20 PM

Can they use some kind of thermal (heat seeking) radar to detect a person in the roof space or have I been watching too many movies. They use something like that to find illegals smuggled inside of vehicles at the border.

I was driving home around 5:30pm when this guy got on the freeway from the off ramp of San Marcos Blvd Bay Point driving on the shoulder doing about 60mph against traffic.

I was on my motorcycle so I got a clear look at the guy , male in his 30’s either Hispanic or black look like he was skinny guy.

could it be the suspect who tried to run a woman off the road at Avila & Willow Pass earlier today….the guy rammed a woman’s car who had a restraining order against him, he ultimately flipped his own car and took out a hundred feet of fence, and fled scene by having someone pick him up before police arrived

ConcordMike September 27, 2022 - 10:09 PM

Vehicle was a Dodge Charger. During the pursuit I heard the want was for Rape and Child Endangerment.

Mr.Mike September 27, 2022 - 10:11 PM

He probably grabbed some ladies clothes and walked out during the evacuation.

Tommy September 28, 2022 - 8:32 AM

Why do we have a swat team if they don’t get to do swat team things anymore. I think the new tactic is to just put wait the guy until he’s so hungry and tired he surrenders. Meanwhile the businesses are shut down, the cops are tied up all night baby sitting.

Spectator at the scene September 27, 2022 - 10:17 PM

Suspects stolen car was a 2012 dodge charger. Gray with red wheels. Swat team has thrown a flash bang inside the building. Many drones flying inside and above the building.
