On Tuesday, Pittsburg Police released photographs of Harrison Thomas and Nathaniel Sheppard who shot at police Monday. Both have been charged with an attempted murder of a police officer.

According to Pittsburg Police Captain Ron Raman, at 4:00 pm Monday, Pittsburg Police Officers followed a stolen vehicle into the Costco parking in the City of Antioch.  The vehicle was occupied by the driver and front passenger.

The driver, Harrison Thomas, 48 of Concord,  initially stopped and as the officers exited their patrol vehicles, the front passenger, Nathaniel Sheppard, 29 of Pittsburg, fired once at the officers prior to fleeing in the vehicle.

Pittsburg police later said that Sheppard was just released from state prison six-days ago.

During the shooting a second shot was fired and the front passenger accidentally shot himself.  Both suspects were arrested after a brief vehicle pursuit.  The shooting suspect was recently released from prison.

Both suspects will be transported to county jail for attempted murder on a police officer in addition to other felony charges.  More information will be provided as it becomes available.

“We are grateful that none of our officers or community members were hurt as a result of the violent acts of these suspects,” said Captain Ron Raman.
