2 Escape Injury After Car Shot Up At Antioch Stop Light

ANTIOCH (CBS SF) – Two people escaped injury after being shot at while waiting at a traffic light in Antioch late Wednesday morning, according to Antioch police.

Around 11:50 a.m. Wednesday, a male and female victim flagged down a police officer and said they had been shot at while waiting for the light to change on northbound Lone Tree Way at James Donlon Boulevard, according to police.

The vehicle the victims were in was riddled with bullets along the passenger side, the hood and windshield, but neither victim was struck by the gunfire, police said.

The suspected shooters were in a vehicle described as a gold SUV, possibly a GMC Yukon. They were last seen traveling north on Lone Tree Way.

The shooting is believed to be gang-related, police said.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Antioch Police Department’s investigations bureau at (925) 779-6926.
