A man who was fatally shot in Antioch early Monday morning has been identified by the Contra Costa County Coroner’s Office as 20-year-old Antioch resident Hueashtian Hudson.
Antioch police received a call reporting a fight and gunfire at 12:18 a.m. in the 2200 block of Banyan Way. When they arrived, officers found Hudson lying in the street suffering from gunshot wounds.
He was transported to Sutter Delta Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Witnesses told police that a white, four-door sedan — possibly a Buick or Cadillac — had pulled up to the victim as he walked alone down the street.
Several gunshots rang out and the victim fell to the ground. Two suspects fled the scene on foot while the others sped off in the car, witnesses told police.
Police are investigating whether the shooting could be related to a second shooting that was reported shortly before 1 a.m. at a 7-Eleven store at 4355 Hillcrest Ave.
When officers arrived at the convenience store, they found the store’s 64-year-old male clerk suffering from two gunshot wounds. One round had hit him in the arm and the other struck him in the hip. Police said the clerk is expected to survive.
A witness told police four shots were fired and then four men were seen running from the store.
Less than an hour after the first shooting, police responded to reports of a gunshot victim at Sutter Delta Medical Center.
The victim, a 22-year-old Antioch man, told police he had been shot by an unknown person on Banyan Way earlier. The man’s injuries were serious and he was transported to a trauma center.
Police are trying to determine whether the incidents are all related and what motivated the shootings.
