Just before 1:00 pm Sunday, Oakley Police responded to a report of a shooting on Ponderosa Drive. Upon arrival, police located a man suffering from a gunshot wound.
The male victim was located on W. Cypress Road laying on the ground shot in the back where the bullet reportedly exited through his chest. He was breathing and alert as the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District firefighters and AMR worked to transport the subject via medical helicopter.
Police quickly located the shooting suspect at a nearby residence and shut down the roadway while telling neighbors to go inside. Police surrounded the home at gunpoint and used a PA System to encourage the subject to come outside.
After several minutes, the subject came outside with his hands up in the air and was taken into custody without incident.
According to Oakley Police Sergeant Perata, the incident was not considered a home invasion robbery.
“The victim was messing with cameras and the home owner shot from his garage, through the garage door and struck the victim, who was in the front yard,” said Perata.
No further information was provided.
