VIDEO: A Stockton man was arrested in Richmond late Saturday for suspicion of attempted murder in the drive-by shooting incident that injured a firefighter and a paramedic in Antioch.
The arrest followed a pursuit that traversed two counties and ended moments after the suspect's vehicle collided with a parked vehicle in Richmond. Antioch police have not yet released the suspect's name or age.
The incident began shortly before 9 p.m., when Contra Costa firefighters and an ambulance from American Medical Response responded to a call for someone requiring medical attention in a parking lot in the 1900 block of Auto Center Drive. Police said that while the first responders were caring for the patient, a silver SUV drove by and someone inside fired shots at them. The vehicle drove by a second time and someone inside fired a second series of shots.
