Antioch Police Investigate Road Rage Incident That Led to Deputy-Involved Shooting

A road rage incident led to an officer-involved shooting in Antioch Tuesday night.

Sgt. John Fortner tells the East Bay Times (http://bayareane.ws/2wZRerQ) the female passenger had reported to police before the Tuesday shooting that a vehicle was chasing them and had repeatedly run into their auto. The early investigation indicated the road rage appears to have stemmed from an earlier domestic incident, Fortner said.

When both vehicles stopped, the suspect exited his vehicle armed with a tire jack, police said.

The off-duty deputy then fired a pistol at the suspect, striking him once in the arm.

When the two vehicles stopped, the suspect got out of his auto armed with a tire jack, Fortner said. They say he shot a man who left the scene.

It is not yet clear where the officer works, but police said it's out of Contra Costa County.

Police later contacted the suspect in a different, unspecified part of the city, Fortner said. He was taken to a hospital with a gunshot injury that was not considered life-threatening, police said.
