Antioch Police responded to gun shots fired at 6:45 pm yesterday on the 2300 block of Manzanita leaving two victims shot.
Both victims ages 26 and 27 were transported to a local hospital. Although the victims are expected to survive, they are are being uncooperative with Antioch Police regarding the incident.
According to Lt. Diane Aguinaga, 10 officers responded to the shooting and were greeted by a crowd of about 50 people. The crowd was deemed hostile and one 30-year-old male was arrested. It is being reported that the crowd shouted at officers, tried to prevent them from getting to a victim and even fought with officers.
At this time, it’s unknown if the incident was gang related or related to the shooting earlier in the day. I will update this story as more information is made available. Anyone with information regarding last nights shooting should contact Antioch Police.
In a separate incident yesterday, there was a robbery reported around 3:40 p.m. at Wendy’s located on the 1800 block of A Street, Antioch police said.
