A Stockton man was arrested in Richmond late Saturday on suspicion of attempted murder in the drive-by shooting incident that injured a firefighter and a paramedic in Antioch, and now authorities are searching for his girlfriend and 4-year-old son.
The arrest of Darryon Williams, 26, followed a pursuit that traversed two counties and ended moments after Williams’ vehicle collided with a parked vehicle in Richmond. Williams also is accused of a homicide in Discovery Bay, police said.
Saturday’s 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.
