Antioch Police said Wednesday that a man who was shot in a neighbor dispute on April 17 has died after being in critical condition for weeks.

According to police, on April17 at about 7:52 am, Antioch Police patrol officers were dispatched to the 3100 Block of Contra Loma Boulevard for a shooting.

It was determined that two neighbors were involved in an argument stemming from long term issues between the two.

During the argument 70-year-old James Bain produced a knife and attempted to stab the 62-year-old male he was arguing with. The 62-year-old male was carrying a firearm and shot Bain as Bain was attempting to stab him.

Bain was transported to a local trauma center where he remained in critical condition until May 12, 2021, when he died from the injuries he sustained during the shooting.

The 62-year-old male was originally arrested for this case but was later released once it was determined the shooting was in self-defense. Police are not releasing the62-year-old male’s name at this time.
