Antioch police officers were dispatched in response to a call for assistance regarding a domestic dispute on the 1700 block of Magnolia Way. Upon arrival, officers saw the female who had made the call walking away from the house. She spoke briefly to the officers, but refused to cooperate, attempting to guide them away from the residence. Officers were already aware of the identity of the person with whom she had been arguing, and that he was on searchable felony probation. As officers approached the front of the residence, Richie Asidanya, a 24-year-old Antioch resident, also on felony probation for drug offenses, opened the front door. When officers informed Asidanya that they intended on searching the residence, he ran into the house but was quickly detained. As officers searched the remainder of the house, they located 21-year-old Antioch resident Frank Stephenson on a mattress in a bedroom, holding a loaded semi-automatic handgun near his head. Also found in the bedroom were 305 grams of marijuana packaged for sale. Another 60 grams of marijuana was located downstairs, where Asidanya was found.
