On Monday, the Antioch Police Department received a call from a local hospital that a male was dropped off with a gunshot wound to the face in the City of Antioch.
According to police, an arrest was made of a 56-year-old female in the City of Fairfield after she allegedly shot her husband, a 60-year-old male in the 2100 block of Buchanan around 2:45 pm Monday.
He is in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after being shot in the face, however, police say he is in critical care. They are currently investigating the motive in the shooting as that is unknown at this time.
Both the husband and wife are residents of Antioch.
Update via Antioch Police
On Monday July 26, 2021, at approximately 2:47 PM, Antioch Patrol Officers were dispatched to the
Kaiser Emergency Room on Sand Creek Road for a 60–year–old male who was dropped off with a
gunshot wound to his face. The male told Emergency Room Staff that he was shot by his wife during a
domestic dispute. The male was immediately transferred to a local trauma center where he was taken into
emergency surgery. The male was transferred to an ICU bed after surgery and is currently listed in critical
but stable condition.
Antioch Police Officers were able to determine the victim and suspect lived in an apartment at 2100
Buchanan Road. Officers responded to the apartment to do a welfare check and located a crime scene.
The Antioch Police Department Investigations Bureau took over this investigation and were able to
determine that the 56–year–old female suspect left Antioch to a family member’s house in Fairfield.
Fairfield Police Officers were able to locate the female suspect and took her into custody for the Antioch
Police Department. The female suspect was interviewed regarding this case and later booked into the
Martinez Detention Facility. This case will be presented to the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s
Office later this week for filing consideration. The Antioch Police Department is not releasing the names of
the victim or suspect at this time due to the nature of this case.
