Where is the information about the other 2 shootings?
I was listening to live fire/EMS dispatch and heard it there.
He can’t get everything, the owner of the forum needs to get more staff or stay on top of the news. There’s always a couple of stories they forgot or don’t have a chance to report on.
Antioch hates black people… Over thirty years ago I was told Pittsburg was ghetto and only white people lived in Antioch… Lmao… Pittsburg is an owner occupied city… Antioch has rentals who owners live in Brentwood… I remember when Antioch was the Asian destination…
Wha…???? Remember to take your daily brain health pills before typing next time, your slipping.
You know along time ago Asians were not allowed to go out last dark because a white girl was raped and they said it was a Asian!!! A 90 year old vet told me this story and he knows his history Brentwood Antioch Pittsburg they call him Byron
Do you hate blacks?
bet the deceased “victim” was Irish.
It’s still August, and how many murders have we had so far this year?!
It was Antioch’s 3rd shooting. Heard on Friday Engine 52 responded but was canceled for two patients on Vista Grande with gunshots to leg. The patients were privately transported to a private non emergency hospital where code 3 ambulances were requested.
I find it somewhat shocking that someone could be shot dead in the middle of a residential neighborhood at 10:00 on a Saturday morning and it doesn’t even warrant a mention on the news. And the shooter has thus far gotten away with it. WTF. Sometimes this place is like the Twilight Zone.
Antioch has become a ses pool of filth and hood trash that have zero respect for anyone or anybody’s lives including there own. Lived there for 35 years, can’t say I miss it all. It’s the same name, but completely different place now sadly
