A 36-year-old unidentified cashier was shot and killed in what Antioch Police are calling a “botched robbery” early Saturday, Nov. 26.
The dispatch center received an emergency call at 2:05 a.m. from an employee at the Chevron Gas Station/Extra Mile convenience store on Contra Loma Boulevard in Antioch, reporting that a person had been shot.
Police found a male down on the floor inside the store with a gunshot wound to his head, administered first aid and called for more emergency personnel. But the victim died at the scene. Police determined the victim was a clerk at the station, was held up at gunpoint and the suspect or suspects ran from the scene and have not been located.
