ANTIOCH (CBS SF) — A 23-year-old man with ties to Richmond and Antioch was killed in a shooting in Antioch on Wednesday night, according to the Contra Costa County coroner’s office.

Lavonta Crummie, a Richmond resident with an address in Antioch, was shot and killed around 7:30 p.m. on Delta Fair Boulevard near Buchanan Road, according to police and a coroner’s deputy.

Crummie was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 23-year-old was a North Richmond rapper who went by the name of “Macho”.

Crummie released his debut album, “The Project Prince: a World of my OWN,” in 2011. Videos for the album’s first three singles were YouTube sensations in Richmond’s hip-hop community.

An unidentified Vallejo man was also struck by the gunfire and taken to a hospital where he remains in critical condition, according to police.

No arrests have been made.

Police said witnesses described the suspect vehicle in the shooting as a gold four-door car that is possibly a Honda or Chevrolet.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Meads at the Antioch Police Department at (925) 779-6884.
