Update: CHP says 1 Dead, Another Wounded in Shooting on Highway 4 Near Port Chicago Highway

by ECT

At 6:29 pm, Contra Costa County Fire Protection District responded to a report of a shooting on Highway 4 near Port Chicago Highway in the City of Concord.

By 6:40 pm, AMR arrived on scene reporting three victims with at least one person who was shot.  AMR reported 1 person was unconscious, 1 person shot and a child who appeared unharmed.

Multiple units are on scene with at least 1 person in CPR.


This evening at about 6:35pm, a freeway shooting occurred on SR-4 westbound, just east of Port Chicago Highway in Concord. One victim succumbed to their injuries from gunshot wounds and another victim suffered moderate injuries due to gunshot wounds. The victims were in a black Toyota Camry. The unknown suspect vehicle fled the scene. As a result of the shooting, the victim vehicle crashed into the metal guard rail at the top of the Port Chicago offramp.

CHP has shut down all westbound lanes of HWY4 in the area for scene processing and collection of evidence. At this time we do not have an estimated time of re-opening the freeway but expect it to be closed for at least a few hours. We will provide updates as soon as we can.

This is an ongoing investigation with Detectives assigned to CHP – Golden Gate Division Special Investigations Unit (SIU) who are actively investigating this shooting. Our detectives are requesting assistance from the public in gathering the details surrounding this incident.

If you or anyone you know have any information that might be helpful, please call the CHP Investigative Tipline at 707-917-4491. For any further media inquires, please direct those inquires to our CHP – Golden Gate Division Unit. Thank you.

One person already died. Now, where are those security cameras which were promised to be installed up and down Hwy 4? What happened to those? Apparently, this happened in westbound traffic, so I guess the shooter just took off westward. It was still light at 6:30 pm … I’m sure there were witnesses.

West-bound on Hwy 4? I bet the shooters were from Antioch. Where else?

When is enough, enough!?

Well, I assume you mean more gun control laws? Like more drug control laws worked out great.

Don’t assume dummy, I am pro-gun. I mean when will people get tired of these criminals and vote for real sentencing for these fucking criminals.

Rick how did you come to that conclusion? Westbound 4…. he wasn’t going home since Antioch is EAST of the shooting location. Let me guess, you deduced they were coming FROM Antioch. Ah….I see what you did there. You’re a bright one, aren’t ya?

Who said he was going home? Both cars were heading westward, so they could have originated in Antioch, which is now catching up to Oakland as far as shooting crimes are concerned. Quite a bit of the Oakland criminal element has now relocated to Antioch. There’s some evidence that this was a planned hit. Rick is right! You are not, NIKKI!
