Teen Shot In Antioch Fast-Food Confrontation

PITTSBURG (BCN) – Police are investigating the shooting of a 17-year-old boy in the parking lot of a Pittsburg Jack in the Box restaurant early Sunday, police Lt. Brian Addington said.

An employee at the restaurant, located at 2135 Railroad Ave., heard gunfire and reported the shooting at 2:30 a.m.

By the time police arrived, all parties had fled. Officers saw blood on the asphalt but the victim was gone.

The teenager, a Pittsburg resident, later showed up at Kaiser Permanente in Antioch where he was treated for a gunshot wound to his bicep and released.

“The victim was driven to the hospital by his friends,” Addington said.

Investigators believe the shooting was preceded by a heated confrontation between the shooter and the victim, who was accompanied by about four friends, Addington said.

After the exchange, the suspect pulled a handgun out of his gold, four-door sedan and shot the victim in the arm, police said.

Police are still trying to determine what sparked the confrontation.

“We don’t know whether the incident was gang-related, but an investigation is under way,” Addington said.”

The suspect remains at large. Witnesses described him as an approximately 20-year-old black man with dreadlocked hair, wearing a white T-shirt and black shorts.

    What the hell are 17 yr olds doing out at 2:30am? On a school night even? Go home and you won’t get hurt! DUH!!!!

  • Mary Jane Long

    Now this story is quite misleading. The Jack-in-the Box referred to is located in Pittsburg — not Antioch. Get your facts straight!

  • Morris Soublet

    Come on Mary Jane, the more important point of the story is that the 17 yr old was out pass 2 am and that a 20 yr old thought it was okay to settle a dispute with a gun.

  • No name

    The story was taken place at Pittsburg BUT he later showed up at Kaiser Permanente in Antioch where he was treated. Read correctly and you’ll understand better Mary Jane. :)

    Well, considering there was a drive by shooting which left one person dead on the street I live on here iin Antioch recently, may as well give Antioch the violent credit it deserves.

    Yep, that boy had no business out that time in the 1st place. He shouls of had his a** in bed! If you notice when it gets around 10:00pm, you’d wanna have yourself off the streets because all the gangsters, thugs, & hoodlums like to roam around that time (9:35ish to around 3:00amish). Most likely someone will end up snitching and telling the police everything they need to know just like ‘First 48’.
