Antioch police announced today that they have arrested a man in connection with what appears to have been a road rage shooting Thursday that seriously injured a 34-year-old Sacramento man. The shooting happened at about 8:20 a.m. in the area of Somersville Road and Delta Fair Boulevard. The victim and his passenger told police that they had been stopped at a red light on Somersville Road at Delta Fair Boulevard when a white, four-door sedan pulled up behind them, police said. When the light turned green, the white car went around them on the left and then both vehicles made a right turn onto Delta Fair Boulevard. As they were making the turn, the driver of the white car fired a shot at the victim. The bullet went through the driver’s side door and struck
the victim in the back. The white car, which contained a male driver and a female passenger, then accelerated west on Delta Fair Boulevard. The victim called police and was taken to a hospital, where he remains in critical but stable condition today, police said. While investigating the case, police reviewed footage from surveillance cameras near the scene and identified a car captured by several cameras. On Friday, a patrol officer spotted a car matching the description of that vehicle near where the shooting happened. The officer pulled the car over and contacted Cornelius Brown, a 24-year-old resident of Antioch and San Francisco, police said. The officer found a loaded gun in the car. During a subsequent search of Brown’s home, police also allegedly found a rifle, ammunition and marijuana packaged for sale, police said. According to police, Brown admitted to the shooting and was arrested and booked into county jail.
