Not everyone w guns are bad lol, learn not to judge people just for their accessories. He might have a gun to save him self because there’s bad people with guns 💁🏽‍♀️ You wouldn’t feel good if the whole world said they were scared of you due to a stupid headline. You ain’t even heard the full story just some hearsay🤦🏽‍♀️

My doors and windows aren’t locked, in fact front door is open.
You people are so silly…

Marta Mccord November 6, 2018 at 9:04 PM

Why don’t you go out and invite the suspect in your house?!?!? You are stupid or ignorant

seenitall November 6, 2018 at 8:47 PM

ain’t judging over here. But explains why he ran away!!!! he should have stayed put and explained why he had a loaded gun on him.!!! Cmon

Any update? November 6, 2018 at 8:58 PM

Police were on a court behind our house and came down our street once. They are gone as is the helicopter. Any update?

Cristina November 6, 2018 at 9:00 PM

He left his gun in the car so I think we are safe. I think that for those who aren’t gun owners then be scared but I’m feeling safe right now.

Usually when cops find a loaded gun in a vehicle is because because the suspect is up to no good and why did he run??? Oh yeah suspect having gun and running from cops sure makes me feel awesome !!! Hell no!!!

concord alumni November 6, 2018 at 9:31 PM

Right!!!!! Why did he run??? Gun or no gun , just the fact of him running away EXPLAINS a lot !

Let’s see here….
If the car is stolen, it would be searched, gun would be found (stolen or otherwise) resulting in multiple charges.

Suspect has a 50/50 chance (or better) if he runs away (unarmed).

Dont judge people who run from the cops ? …so if you haven’t done anything wrong, why run ?! Who’s the dummy now ? I have never had a cop chase me. Why ? Oh, because I am a law abiding citizen.

Commonsenz November 6, 2018 at 9:24 PM

Suspect I believe was wearing black hoodie with white emblem on front and black beanie he was acting a but paranoid in demeanor walking towards BART down Clayton road. And if there was a loaded gun in car doesn’t mean he isn’t carrying another weapon…..cohld This person be connected to the attempted robbery this evening in walnut creek?

I’ll bet if the cops searched their own car, they would also find a loaded gun.

Simonpure November 7, 2018 at 12:48 PM

Unless that’s where the suspect got it 🙂

Barney R November 7, 2018 at 7:50 AM

Cops would of shot him dead if he stayed in car and they knew gun was there.
So he’s better off to run and stay alive. Cops will shoot you if you are holding a popsicle in your hand suspiciously, so run haby run…

Anonympus November 7, 2018 at 8:52 AM

Barney , you are so right. I know tons of people shot while clutching a popsicle in their soon to be cold, dead hands. I suspect Concord gets 2-3 a week, more in the summer, of course . That’s to be expected.

And yet they let Klingons go free constantly.

108RS is 10-8

Neenee November 7, 2018 at 12:34 PM

Is there any update whether they found him or not?

Ancient Mariner November 7, 2018 at 10:04 PM

Glad he left his gun behind in the car.
A win-win situation for everybody:
no police officer gets shot at, nor any civilian;
it takes the gun off the black market, so no being used in future crimes;
if he’s confronted by the police, he’s less likely to be killed by them without a gun; and
if the gun’s stolen, the owner can get it back.
