The 32-year-old man wanted in connection with the March 25 shooting of an 8-year-old Concord boy has apparently been shot today by the Fairfield Police.

Concord Police confirm the suspect, James Jarrad, was taken into custody, but have not confirmed the person shot was Jarrad.

The person who was shot by police is in critical condition.

The boy who was shot on March 25 in Concord is expected to survive.

UPDATE: It was Jarrad.

Like the guy said over on FB, it would be better if Jarrad would not survive. Not only for the hospital and trial costs, but Jarrad is a career criminal and be an endless cost to taxpayers. Besides, the dude shot at his brother and hit a child. Who wants that kind of creep around anyhow?

Happy Easter?

This is confusing.

Fig Newton March 28, 2016 at 3:37 PM

I agree, let him die! What a piece of trash shooting a little kid! Total Scum

Anon March 28, 2016 at 3:42 PM

Thank God they found him. Everyone around that street has been living in fear for this guy coming back. Now I pray that the Concord PD and CPS takes care of the rest of the situation. Any update on the boy?

Concord resident March 28, 2016 at 3:46 PM

I agree marissia… So that means jarred is going to die correct? Not that I want that just want clarification

Maryanne March 28, 2016 at 3:47 PM

Thank you fairfield police

Hey bacon, hopefully he does get a trial so everyone on claycord gets to see what scumbag losers this family really is. People here at claycord keep saying others don’t know the details. yet after living next door to this family for over 10 years This family made our lives living hell. Drugs, gangs and fighting were an everyday issue. It’s sad this happened to the kid but it was only a matter of time. This is not the first time the house has been shot up.

Wonder what sparked the shooting. Anyways, looks like what goes around comes around.

What Security March 28, 2016 at 4:03 PM

He looks like the Bad Easter Bunny fell on hard-times just add bunny ears

Wren March 28, 2016 at 4:08 PM

This entire situation, everyone looses. His family will be hurt forever more, the 8 year old boy and his family will be emotionally scared. It is a cross everyone will always carry

C March 28, 2016 at 4:26 PM

I care not for he or his family. It’s a shame that he lived… I hope the officer fares well in the scrutiny he will go through.

Had enough March 28, 2016 at 4:32 PM

Ship the entire lot of them to Stockton. The boy needs to be put in a foster family until this family gets their priorities in line.

Great job guys..

Eye for an Eye!

Kind of ironic isn’t it!
Some justice
The POS does absolutely no good for mankind !
Let God sort him out !!!!!

I'm_right March 28, 2016 at 4:56 PM

Don’t waste time or money helping this scumbag live!

As my mother always said
Choose your friends carefully
You become what they are!
And vice versa!

When you lay down with dogs
You get fleas!

Bacon March 28, 2016 at 5:00 PM

Bleeding hearts are so ignorant.

Concord1970 March 28, 2016 at 5:17 PM

Put all the kids in child protective services !
Look at the mother on the news!
What kind of mother would submit her
Kids to those surroundings and let the
Convicted felons and dirt bags hang around?

Anonymous March 28, 2016 at 5:17 PM

I’m sending this to those who know Jarred personally, it took a lot to get him to the point that he needed to use a firearm in his defense. Only he knows what brought it to that extreme. To everyone else, I know his intentions were not to harm a child. It’s wrong to make comments about someone you don’t know and or a situation you know nothing about. My prays are with.the families involved.

Concord1970 March 28, 2016 at 5:27 PM

Contra costa county needs to pull the section 8 voucher!
Get the trash out of the neighborhood !
Turn the kids over tho cps.
And move on
Turn a page for the betterment of the neighborhood!

Finally thank goodness. They got him. Not the whole death thing but that he is off the streets. And if he happens to due well then I guess it’s his time.

Bert March 28, 2016 at 6:13 PM

Glad to hear that he’s caught.
But let’s be real; mom lays down with nothing but gangbangers/convicted felons and wonders why something like this would happen?
What will it take for you to realize that the people you are letting into your life are bad news?

Wake up.

If not for your own sake, for the sake of your kids.

Mr. Jarrad’s actions were reprehensible and should result in the loss of his privilege of living in a free and just society.


Concord1970 March 28, 2016 at 6:59 PM

Not only pull his plug!
Let God sort him out !
Worthless human being
No good for society
No good for mankind
Does absolutely no good being alive !
Karma karma karma.
A burden on tax payers
A burden to the police and the courts
Look him up
Lafayette. Moraga. Contra costa county
Solono county, Fairfield
And so on. A drain on society
He got his!!!!!!!

Silva March 28, 2016 at 7:18 PM

Anonymous #22, I know! How was he to know his drive-by shooting might not go the way he meant it to? People can be harsh! Jeez.

Concord1970 March 28, 2016 at 7:33 PM

Regarding anonymous
” it took a lot to get him to get him to the point that he needed”
“Use a firearm in his defense”

A lot of speed??
Would bet that the firearm used Is stolen too!
Would bet that he has never held a job
Would bet he is a high school drop out
Would bet he has never contributed a ounce of anything
To society except for narcotics .

anyone else share the same thought?

THE ANIMAL March 28, 2016 at 7:46 PM

Tell the Fairfield Ph.D. I’ll reimburse them for the bullets……………..

Do the ends justify the means?

@#33 Saint Peter
Who’s judging now?

Bob Foo March 29, 2016 at 7:08 AM


You’re judging people for judging people…

BirdCrap March 29, 2016 at 4:09 PM

@9 – Another bleeding heart…stop feeling sorry for the bad guys. He made bad choices, tough sh-t. Should have made better ones.

@33 – Saint Whatever….stop pretending to be a false prophecy and condemning people for speaking the truth. Criminals need to be treated as such. There is a warm place in hell reserved just for people like this.

Zardoz March 29, 2016 at 5:08 PM

Are you friggin kidding me?
So your saying had he not hit the child, his shooting at the step Dad was justifyable?

Please explain your logic.

Jelly Phalanges PhD March 29, 2016 at 7:10 PM

@#37 Zardoz
I sense a bit of sarcasm from Silva# 29.

Zardoz March 29, 2016 at 7:29 PM

I hope so Mr.P

Zardoz March 29, 2016 at 7:33 PM

Because 22 is either a troll or an idiot.

Atticus Thraxx March 29, 2016 at 8:02 PM

I saw the mom and stepfather interviewed on the tv. The child is doomed. Taking his first GSW at eight, he is well on his way to thugdome anyway. At least that was my impression based on a 20 second interview.
