Antioch Police Identify Suspects Charged in Fatal Drive-By Shooting

12

On Tuesday, the Antioch Police Department identified two people arrested last week in connection to the September 1 fatal shooting of Raul Garcia, 57 of Oakland.

The Contra Costa County District Attorneys Office has charged Antioch residents Tearri Richard, 25, and Lakia Poles 24, with murder for the killing of Garcia. Richard was also charged with arming enhancement and special allegation of Drive by Murder.

The shooting occurred on Sept. 1 at 9:20 pm after an argument between several subjects started in the east driveway of the Chevron Gas Station located at 1235 California Avenue in Pittsburg. The argument appears to be over a road rage incident.

The road rage incident continued into Antioch where Garcia was shot and killed in the 3400 Block of Rio Grande Drive in the City of Antioch.

Last week, police said they took a 25-year-old man and 24-year-old female into custody with the assistance of Tulare Police Department SWAT Team, where they served a warrant in the City of Tulare in the 1500 block of Karen Avenue.

During the warrant search, critical evidence was located.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Gonzalez at 925-779-6923, or the Antioch Police Department non-emergency line at (925)778-2441. You may also text-a-tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using the key word ANTIOCH

  3. Kudos to everyone who feels safe in Antioch. I don’t and haven’t for a long time. This city gets more squalid each day – and I’ve lived here for 30+ years – when it used to be nice. The city fixing up roadway medians and freeway entry and exits with landscaping is a nice diversion to the slum that our city has become.

    I was stuck in a lockdown at the Baskin Robbins in Deer Valley shopping center a few years back. About 200 kids -not an exaggeration!- decided to come to the shopping center to fight. Jackets flew off along with dreads and hair extensions. The store manager locked us in and told us this was a normal occurrence.

    It’s so nice living in the city that’s been named the worst in the Bay Area!

    • You to eh?…ha. Now apd swarms the center when the chillins are released from day care to stave off “incidents”. Not a speck of respect to be had by the kids. Broken homes make broken people.

      Decent folks built the area and the trash comes to ruin it because the trash will never be in a position while the sun still burns to do anything else but destroy.
