Update per Antioch Police (Sept. 13 at 5:53am)
On 9/12/17, the Antioch Police responded to the call of a road rage incident that ended in a shooting at Lone Tree Way and Country Hills Drive by an off-duty out of county deputy.
Initially, a female victim called the Antioch Police to report a road rage incident. The incident started on Delta Fair Boulevard and culminated near the 4200 block of Lone Tree Way.
According to Sergeant John Fortner, during the incident, the suspect vehicle chased the victim’s vehicle a short distance through the city while repeatedly colliding into the victim’s vehicle. Once both vehicles came to a stop, the suspect exited his vehicle armed with a tire jack. The male driver of the victim vehicle fired a pistol at the suspect striking him one time. The victims of the road rage waited for police to respond while the suspect fled the area.
“During the investigation, officers were able to determine that this crime was domestic in nature,” said Fortner.
The investigation led officers to a different location in the city where the injured suspect was contacted. The suspect was transported to a local area hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot injury. Afterwards, the suspect was booked into the county jail on several felony charges.
