Sunday Update from Oakley Police
Oakley officers were called to 69 Carol Lane at 9:37 PM for the report of a subject shot in the stomach. The caller said she heard one shot and then saw the subject stumble from an apartment on the third floor to the second floor with a gunshot wound. Officers arrived on scene and found a male victim on the ground of the second-floor hallway with a gunshot wound to his abdomen
Oakley officers took proper precautions to make the immediate area safe and confirmed the apartment in question was empty. The Oakley Police Department did this by calling in other agencies to assist them with a detailed and methodical search. The assistance came in the form of the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office, Pittsburg Police Department and the Lafayette Police Department. These agencies provided the Oakley Police Department with additional officers, a canine team and drone pilots.
Our investigation revealed a female occupant of the apartment had a male companion over visiting her when another male showed up to the apartment to object. The two males began to argue for about 10 minutes when the male who had originally been at the apartment shot the male, who had arrived to object, in his abdomen. The male who was shot was transported to a local hospital and he is listed in critical condition.
The suspect in this case is identified as Christopher James Williams, 26, Stockton. Our investigation is revealing the female occupant transported Williams out of the immediate area prior to the arrival of the Oakley Police Department, before she returned back to her apartment to meet with our officers. It has been determined Williams is a parolee and he has an arrest warrant for a previous parole violation.
Williams is wanted for assault with a deadly weapon, use of firearm during commission of a crime, possession of a firearm by a parolee, an additional parole violation and the warrant for his previous parole violation. The firearm that was used in this incident was not recovered so Williams should be considered armed.
If anybody has any information related to these two incidents that are encouraged to call the Oakley Police Department at 925-625-8855
