On Thursday the Antioch Police Department announced the arrest of a suspect in a Tuesday shooting in the 1000 block of Fitzuren Road in the City of Antioch.

At around 3:30 pm, police received a report of a large fight with shots fired.  Officers learned the fight continued to the intersection of Fitzuren Road and Contra Loma Boulevard, where a male suspect shot into an occupied vehicle at a gas station.

According to police, none of the occupants of the vehicle were struck by gunfire, however, patrol officers located surveillance video which showed the shooter, and investigators were able to recover additional video which led to the identification of the suspect.

Today, at about 2:30 pm, Antioch Police Special Operations Unit (SOU) detectives spotted the suspect in the 2300-block of Lemontree Way. With the assistance of our Problem Oriented Policing (POP) Team, they were able to arrest him without incident as he was attempting to get into a vehicle parked on the street.
Police did not identify the suspect, however, a search of the vehicle revealed a stolen firearm from a burglary in the City of Millbrae.
The suspect was booked at the County Jail on charges of attempted murder, shooting into an occupied vehicle, and unlawful possession of a loaded firearm. He was already wanted on outstanding warrants for burglary, DUI, and possession of a controlled substance in both San Mateo and San Francisco Counties.
