SUNDAY UPDATE VIA ANTIOCH POLICE
On April 17, at approximately 6:03PM, Antioch police officers were called a residence in the 4500block of Shannondale Drive on the report of someone who had been shot.
Numerous officers responded to the scene. There was a large gathering, of mostly young adults and juveniles, at the residence. When officers arrived, they had to contend with an uncooperative and growing crowd of over twenty people.
As the officers tried to make their way to an open garage where the victim was located, several subjects in the crowd started to assault the officers.
Antioch officers called for emergency mutual aid from the surrounding jurisdictions to get the crowd under control. At least two people were arrested for resisting, delaying, obstructing, or assaulting public safety officers.
Once officers entered the garage, they located a 16-year-old victim, down on the floor, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Officers learned that two suspects entered the garage, and at least one of them began shooting at the victim. Afterwards, both suspects fled on-foot in an unknown direction.
The identities of both suspects are unknown.
Currently, detectives are working to identify any suspects or persons-of-interest. The investigation is still active, and evidence is being collected and evaluated.
