Woman Shot In Antioch Drive-By

ANTIOCH (CBS SF) – A 39-year-old woman was injured in a drive-by shooting in Antioch early Thursday morning, acting Capt. Leonard Orman said.

The woman was walking in the 700 block of I Street at about 2 a.m. when two men pulled up alongside her in a newer-model silver Range Rover with shiny rims.

Someone inside the car began shooting at her, firing about 10 shots and hitting her twice in the arm, Orman said.

The victim was able to make it to a nearby apartment where she asked for help.

She remained hospitalized Thursday but is expected to survive, Orman said.

He said investigators do not believe the attack was random.

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects, Orman said.

Anyone with information is urged to call police dispatch at (925) 778-2441.

    Walking down the street in Antioch at 2 a.m. Sorry, folks, that’s not a true crime victim. Anyone who doesn’t have enough common sense to know better than to walk the streets of ANY town at 2 a.m. gets what s/he gets.

    sad but true!

    You can walk through MY town at ANY hour of the day and not have to worry about gang violence, or any violence for that matter. Most likely because everyone here exercises their right to LEGALLY carry a firearm. Yay NW Montana.

    you sure it was not OAKLAND?

    Being out walking on the middle of the night is not smart, that is true, but it does not give anyone the right to shoot them!!

    If people thought someone might shoot back it would have a chilling effect. After the gun ban was lifted in D.C. there was a decrease in certain types of violent crime.

    Guns are excellent at preventing rapes for instance. A dead rapist is an impotent rapist. ;)

    Carry on…
