PITTSBURG (CBS SF) — Antioch police are investigating a shooting that killed a Pittsburg man and critically wounded an Antioch resident Tuesday afternoon.

Police were called to a shooting in an apartment complex in the 3900 block of Delta Fair Boulevard shortly after 2:30 p.m., and found a 23-year-old Pittsburg man inside a vehicle in the parking lot with apparent gunshot wounds, according to acting Lt. Tony Morefield.

Around the same time, a second shooting was reported in a neighboring apartment complex in Hudson Court, where a 28-year-old Antioch resident with gunshot wounds was found.

The Pittsburg resident was pronounced dead at the scene, while the Antioch man was taken to a hospital in critical condition, Morefield said.

Investigators determined both men had been shot in the parking lot on Delta Fair Boulevard, but the surviving victim had fled the scene to Hudson Court, where he was ultimately found, Morefield said.

The second victim remains in surgery, and the investigation is still in its preliminary stages, Morefield said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Antioch police at (925) 779-6943.
