The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s department has arrested a 26-year-old man who was involved in multiple shootings Saturday night, including one that left a medic and fire personnel injured as they responded to a medical emergency in Antioch.
Sheriff’s officials announced in a statement on Sunday, the suspect, identified as Darryon Williams of Stockton, was arrested in the City of Richmond.
Williams is accused of shooting at Antioch police officers, AMR medics and CON Fire personnel in a drive-by shooting just before 9 p.m. Saturday. Two were hit and sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Williams fled the scene and was pursued by numerous law enforcement agencies before he was taken into custody.
Williams is also accused of killing a 64-year-old man at his house on the 2100 block of Newport Court in Discovery Bay.
Sheriff’s Deputies found Michael Iliff, 64, of Discovery Bay dead in the house as they conducted a welfare check Saturday night.
