The following is from the Antioch Police Department:
On 5/25/23, at approximately 8:45 PM, the Antioch Police Department Dispatch Center started receiving numerous 9-1-1 calls reporting multiple gunshots being fired at the 4400 block of Delta Fair Boulevard.
As officers were responding, witnesses called to report two victims were down on the ground and yelling for help. When officers arrived at the scene, they located two victims outside. One male victim was suffering from at least two gunshot wounds to his legs, and one female victim was suffering from what appeared to be two gunshot wounds to the head.
Evidence at the scene indicated the incident occurred outdoors in front of several residences.
Officers immediately began administering first aid and called for fire department and AMR paramedics. The male victim was transported to a local area hospital, and the female victim ultimately succumbed to her injuries at the scene.
Prior to police arrival, the suspect fled the area in a vehicle and has not been contacted by police. During the preliminary investigation, it appears the victims and the suspect knew each other, and this homicide is likely domestic (violence) in nature.
Antioch Police Department’s Investigations Bureau responded to the scene and took over the
investigation. Currently, detectives are interviewing witnesses and residents in the area and are working to identify any suspects or persons-of-interest. The investigation is still active, and evidence is being collected.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Duffy, email@example.com at (925) 779-6884, or Detective Gragg,
firstname.lastname@example.org at (925) 779-6889. You may also text-a-tip anonymously to 274637 (CRIMES) using the key word ANTIOCH.
Antioch… Contra Costa’s version of Oakland?
I hope they add more attorneys to prosecute violent crime.
I’m surprised Antioch has any cops left to answer a call.
Antioch…Contra Costa’s other Richmond
Don’t bang another man’s wife.
Um, what if separated?
And that makes three dead for the year.
Thank god they are cracking down on text messaging.
Antioch devolving into Concord 2.0.
Coco county needs to ditch everything west of the hills, north of Hwy 4 and east of 680.
Another evening with Wild Man Fischer.
