At least two shootings within the the span of an hour left one man dead and two others wounded overnight, police said.

One of the attacks occurred at a minimart and injured a store clerk. A separate victim of the night's violence was more seriously injured.

The first shooting was reported about 12:15 a.m. in the 2200 block of Banyan Way, where officers were responding to a call of a fight that led to gunfire, police said. They found a 20-year-old Antioch man lying in the street with gunshot wounds, and learned that a white four-door Buick or Cadillac drove up and opened fire as he walked down the street.

The victim was taken to the hospital where he died. His identity was not immediately released.

A second shooting occurred about 12:50 a.m. at the 7-Eleven on Hillcrest Avenue near Wildhorse Drive. Details are sketchy in that shooting but a witness reported hearing four shots and seeing four men running from the store. Officers found the store clerk, a 64-year-old man, suffering from gunshot wounds in the arm and hip. He is expected to survive.

This is ridiculous. Antioch has gotten so out of control. I grew up here, and actually lived smack dab in the middle of "The Mo" for a few years. I never got messed with and I was a SWF, if someone did something out of line, I would absolutely put them in their place. I never lived in fear.

Now I am married and have kids and we moved back to Antioch just recently. We moved to a "nice" neighborhood, otherwise we wouldn't have moved here. WTF happened, Antioch? I hear gunfire EVERY single night! When I used to live in the middle of it, I was in my early 20's- fearless, and unfortunately got used to the gunfire. Now that I am a mom, I have frickin anxiety every night because of the shooting. I fear for my children's safety, and could never get used to it. I literally do not sleep anymore.
Also, I would like to note that I am not racist- HOWEVER- I am getting sick and tired of people being racist towards my husband and I for being white. I get nothing but rude stares, and attitude, literally not one decent encounter since moving here. Unless you want to count me being "hit on" everywhere I go, despite the big fat rock on my finger. It is not flattering, and I don't need anyones perversions directed my way to boost my self esteem. That's what my husbands for.

Back to the topic at hand, I heard some of those shots last night. I don't know what to do anymore.
All I can do is pray.

Yes, I did register but still says Oakland. A little ironic... Oh well, i am officially "Mrs. Tenacious" now. "Sad But True" was already taken.

Reverse Racism is exactly what is happening here. I was brought up in a good Christian home. I was taught to respect life, in all aspects- no matter what color. I remember my first "racial" encounter was when I was in 1st grade. One of my classmates, black girl, tormented me. I asked her why she was so mean to me and she said "cause your a cracker!". I was so confused, until a friend told me what it meant. It's not fair, I did nothing to the girl.
Second encounter was in 3rd grade, my teacher was an old black lady. She had so much hatred, that she actually physically abused us. She bruised my ribcage during one of her rants. My mom immediately went to the Principal. The teacher was put on suspension. I changed teachers.
I'm just saying, as far back as I can remember there has been reverse racism in my life, yet I have never EVER been racist.
I still would prefer to live in peace and harmony, but 30 some odd years later and it's worse than ever. I am getting sick and tired of trying to be PC.

Thanks for the advice. Thanks for the Welcome. I just need to vent sometimes. It's nice to know I'm not alone, because seriously I thought for a minute I was the only person in Antioch who felt this way. I'm not sure if there's much I can DO to actually make an impact.

I absolutely hate the double standard. When we moved back here, I chose to NOT enroll my kids in the public schools. I am now homeschooling, until we can afford to put them in private school. It's better for them academically, since AUSD has gone even more to shi#. My kids would absolutely suffer from Reverse Racism if they went to the school the district assigned them. HELL NO! Cause then I'd end up in jail if either of my children are harmed. If that happened, I would be the racist- not the one who taught their child to hate whites.

Sorry I'm all over the place, I am just SO fired up today! I've had it!

And all the while crime is dropping in Oakland, Richmond and San Francisco. Not to mention Pittsburg. Because they moved here. Brentwood is starting to see the turn around that we saw coming 10 years ago. Thus the name "Creeping Crap"

If I were to drive up Sycamore, or Banyan, or Spanos and became a victim of a "stray" bullet, nothing would happen. I would just be another victim on the 11 o'clock news.
NOW, If a black person were to drive through an all white neighborhood and was killed by a "stray" bullet, WTF do you think would happen?

To add to my point, there are no "all white" neighborhoods left in Antioch.

I want to see where this goes.

Exactly! That is why I know putting my kids in home school was the best thing I could've done for them. People try to say that it is not healthy because the kids aren't getting the "social" interaction they need. BA-LO-NEY! They have so many classes, and workshops, and opportunities to choose from. The thing is, it's up to the PARENTS to involve their children, as well as themselves.
So I guess to most people "social interaction" is dropping your kids off into the lions den.

I am so sorry for what your daughter and your family is going through. I don't think I would know what to do either. I will pray for healing and justice.

I was the one that called in the shots fired at seven eleven on wild horse. I told the cops they we're on foot all four were black teenagers. I told them they were still in the neighborhood that they never came out. The cops didnt even look, I sat for about an hour watching all 5 police cars just stay at the crime scene.

Im a former Marine and Im not going to stamd down and be scared of the antioch section 8. I have my AR 15 let them try to come to my house.

What was the discription? If they just go and nab four black teenagers from the street they will be slapped with a lawsuit. They have their hands tied unless they catch them with the smoking gun. And even then they still may walk because they are black.
