On Saturday, a transient woman was shot twice at Lone Tree Way and the Bypass in Antioch in an apparent drive by shooting around 3:00 pm.
The incident shut down Lone Tree Way at the Bypass as well as Canada Valley near Lowes as a medical helicopter was requested to airlift the woman to a local hospital.
She was treated and released.
According to a family member, the victim was shot twice in the leg by an African American male after she was panhandling with a sign. The suspect was the only occupant of the vehicle. They say the shooting was unprovoked as the vehicle drove up, fired shots and drove away.
The Antioch Police Department said late Saturday that CHP is handling the investigation. No further formation has been released.
