A 20-year-old Pittsburg man remains in critical condition after being shot in the head Wednesday night on the Delta de Anza Trail in Pittsburg, a police lieutenant said today. A passerby heard what sounded like a gunshot at about 8:30 p.m. on the trail near Atlantic Avenue and Harbor Street and saw a man lying on the ground, police Lt. Ron Raman said. The witness ran to a nearby MacDonald’s restaurant and called police, Raman said. Officers arrived within minutes and found the victim lying on the ground with a gunshot wound to the back of his head, Raman said.

Officers performed CPR until paramedics arrived and transported him to Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch. He was then transferred to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, where he remained on life support today, Raman said. Investigators believe that the victim may have been involved in a feud in Antioch and was shot at several days earlier. He had reportedly been taking refuge in Pittsburg, Raman said. Investigators are working with Antioch police to determine the nature of the alleged feud and who was involved in it. They were also trying to find out what brought the victim to the trail Wednesday night, but no suspects
