Antioch police this week arrested two men suspected of attempted homicide in connection with a March 6 shooting in the 2800 block of Gentrytown Drive.
According to a press release from Acting Lt. Diane Aguinaga, Modesto resident Keenan Lawson, 25, was taken into custody on Monday during a search of his Modesto home. A firearm was found in his vehicle. Antioch resident Jjuan Sanders, 30, who was also involved in the shooting, was apprehended by the Antioch police on Wednesday.
On March 6 at approximately 1:54 a.m. on Gentrytown Drive, multiple shots were fired at a vehicle driven by a 51-year-old male Antioch resident. The victim was not injured.
Earlier that evening, police report that the three men were at a local nightclub when they ran into each other unexpectedly. The victim was allegedly involved in a bad break-up with a female relative of Lawson and Sanders, who are cousins. The three engaged in an argument until the victim left.
Those with information regarding this case should call Detective Santiago Castillo at 925-779-6933.
