Police Investigating Deadly Officer-Involved Shooting in Antioch

ANTIOCH (BCN) — Sheriff’s deputies serving a restraining order shot and killed an armed suspect in Antioch this afternoon, according to a Contra Costa County sheriff’s spokesman.

The incident occurred at roughly 12:40 p.m. at an apartment complex in the 1000 block of Claudia Court.

Deputies were attempting to serve a domestic violence restraining order/criminal protective order against the apartment’s occupant, who also had a no-bail warrant for his arrest, when he allegedly charged at one of the deputies with some kind of weapon, sheriff’s spokesman Jimmy Lee said.

The deputy opened fire, striking the man, who was later pronounced dead at the scene. The suspect’s name was not immediately being released.

Personnel from the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s office, the Antioch Police Department and the sheriff’s office are investigating the
shooting.
