Fox is considered armed and dangerous.

Using witness descriptions, officers were able to track down the suspect vehicle, which was found parked in front of a home in the 100 block of Marin Avenue in Bay Point late Tuesday morning, Raman said.

Contra Costa County sheriff’s deputies and Pittsburg police spoke to residents inside the home where the car was parked but did not locate Fox.

A motive for the shooting has not been determined, but police believe the victim was targeted, he said.

Anyone with information about Fox’s whereabouts is asked to call Pittsburg police at (925) 646-2441.
