UPDATE: Three People Shot In Concord

August 3, 2021 22:15 pm · 51 comments

At least two, but possibly three people appear to have been shot on Pine St. in downtown Concord tonight.

It was a shooting into a vehicle just after 10 p.m.

One victim was found inside the vehicle, and the other victim was located nearby. The extend of the injuries is unclear at this time.

Information on the suspect has not been released.

UPDATE: Three people were shot. It appears one person has died, although that has not been confirmed by police.

Thanks to Maria for the photo.

Thank you newscum, empty the jails and put them on the streets.

Steve August 3, 2021 at 10:59 PM

That’s a bit discriminative to the rest of the population, but at least I can report about you. It’s known as Meadowlands, where you get cars and groceries. Either way, Concord is chill, just don’t mess with their clientele.
Have you seen the homeless issue? (P)olice don’t bother to help; this was bound to occur.

How could you assume who it was or know the details, yes that area is more known for Latinos these days but that’s an idiotic comment for sure

Aunt Barbara August 4, 2021 at 12:21 AM

What a sad world we live in. No value or respect for a human life.
Now a daily occurence and noone even blinks. We are numb.
Recall Gavin Newsom

Straight outta Concord

I hope they sent some social workers to help sort this out.

That was a good one!

Side note but still related. While everyone is being told by the media and federal government how deadly the #19 virus is, and how important it is for Americans to social distance, this same federal government imported 1 million illegal immigrants into the country just last week.

Me August 4, 2021 at 1:48 AM

1.1 million apprehensions this year. Not imported just last week…. Where did you even come up with that number???

In the year 2000. There was 1.7 million by September

Randy August 4, 2021 at 7:00 AM

…. and not vaccinated

Dr. Jellyfinger August 4, 2021 at 8:23 AM

Trump had it under control… then Biden fixed it but good!
Let ’em in and gave them bus tickets,distributed them around the country, Covid or not, it didn’t matter.
Gangs? yep, we got them too!
Like the Offsprings say: “Ya gotta keep them separated”
Did you vote for Biden?…. friggin idiots.

miguel August 4, 2021 at 9:30 AM

@Dr. Jellytinger funny that you mention the Offspring, they recently released a video where they changed that line to tell people to get the vaccine. They just fired their drummer for declining to do so.

Johnny J August 4, 2021 at 1:35 PM

Maybe, just maybe these immigrants can fill in the void for all of those lazy citizens that feel like they don’t have to pay their rent or go back to work. Fingers crossed!

Bella August 4, 2021 at 3:04 AM

Newsom……How pathetic his realm has become and always was.

Veronica August 4, 2021 at 4:24 AM

Has anyone thought that we may need the immigrants to work and pay into the system because too many people here don’t want to work . Some would rather stay on unemployment then go back to work. I see this around me, Plus there are plenty of jobs and not enough willing workers. Why are we so afraid of the immigrants? How can this be turned around into a positive situation?

Kauai Mike August 4, 2021 at 5:40 AM

Hand them a tax number on entry and have them shore up the broke as a joke Social Security fund.

OverWhelmed August 4, 2021 at 5:55 AM

@ Verionica
If you really think these illegals are going to pay into the system you are on another planet. They are here at the Govs. doing to milk an already hurting society into poverty so they can control us like the other socialist country’s. Get your head out of the dark place and understand what is going on. For a WOKE person you sure are asleep!

Anonymous August 4, 2021 at 7:12 AM

Illegal immigration is a net loss to the American taxpayer. They are often paid under the table (pay no taxes at all) and send a substantial amount of their pay home. And now they bring their kids with them. And while the adults may not be eligible for welfare, their kids are and they take full advantage of it. Free health care via MEDI-CAL, including pre- and post-natal care for the babies they have in the Unites States that we pay for. All sorts of free food programs and subsidized rent. Their is a ton of state and county aid out there and they know how to get it.

Illegal aliens are a taxpayer-subsidized workforce that benefits small business at the expense of American workers and the taxpayers.

There are plenty of willing workers; there is a lack of workers willing to work for peanuts. That’s the real problem.

Bdpirate August 4, 2021 at 7:36 AM

@Veronica
This is not the time to joke making a comment like that.
What’s the matter with illegal immigrants..? Really turn it around to a positive situation? You are obviously drunk making those comments.

The Professor August 4, 2021 at 8:10 AM

Ridiculous comment.

We need immigrants because we don’t want to work? “How can this be turned around…?

The answer is a really simple on: STOP PAYING PEOPLE TO NOT WORK!

The Fearless Spectator August 4, 2021 at 8:28 AM

Easy. Encourage them to enter the U.S. legally. Covid and any other medical issues diagnosed and treated day one. A clearly defined flowchart of what it takes to become a citizen with attainable goals and timelines.

As for the people who would rather stay on unemployment, you can thank the Biden administration for that problem. Remember, this is what Newsom wants also. Cheap labor for his cronies, drive the middle class down to poverty level, and free income and healthcare for everyone, while the elite get more elite.

The only real fear of immigrants is due to the daily Covid super spreader events at the border. However regarding Newsom and his Soros elected DA’s releasing criminals early, now that’s something to be fearful of.

Dr. Jellyfinger August 4, 2021 at 8:46 AM

@ Veronica ~ Stop voting for Democrats.

Aunt Barbara August 4, 2021 at 11:38 AM

Unfortunately many are ruining businesses, pretending they can cook.etc.No real skills.
Communication is absent and second grade education.
Not too helpful taking jobs from others with better skills and a real tax paying citizen.

Rapidrate August 4, 2021 at 5:45 PM

Illegal immigrants take way more away from the country than they contribute. Bilingual education, free healthcare, welfare, foodstamps (wic), section 8 housing, do you thinkthese things are free? Illegal Immigrants mowing lawns for 11 bucks an hour with 6 children at home living in the sf bay area are a drain on the tax base.

Two Wheeler August 4, 2021 at 5:22 AM

Hey @Steve, how you you like the Police to deal with the homeless? Camping isn’t a crime. The police management gives no written direction as to how they would like this handled. The city council is also mute on the issue. Sign up, suit up, and implement your plan.

Wow way to stereotype. So let me get this straight immigrants are the only ones that commit crimes? People over here talking bout immigrants and this and that. Not even concerned that 3 people were shot one possibly dead.

Rapidrate August 4, 2021 at 6:57 PM

And guarantee at least 2 of the 3 or all 3 where children or grandchildren of illegal immigrants, or possibly even illegal immigrants themselves. You do realize California didn’t become majority Mexican without mass illegal immigration right? I mean you do have eyes right?

Always Right August 4, 2021 at 6:29 AM

Veronica,

Yes to legal immigration. No to illegal immigration.

It is really that simple.

Hayden Barsotti August 4, 2021 at 6:52 AM

“Concord…Where families come first.” Great place to raise a family!!!

Susan T August 4, 2021 at 6:56 AM

I can’t wait for Newscum to be recalled! This is all his fault

Cellophane August 4, 2021 at 6:57 AM

Deadly incidents such as this are foreseeable when supporting and voting for modern progressive policies and representatives.

Randy August 4, 2021 at 7:02 AM

…. going through the legal process and getting vaccinated before crossing borders? if so – welcome!

T August 4, 2021 at 8:07 AM

I don’t think it’s a political issue that we as humans are animals.

sam malone August 4, 2021 at 8:19 AM

There are plenty of jobs that are available expecially for dock workers as many goods are stalled out in ships due tolack of workers availability. So stop with playing the pity card that there are no good paying jobs available. Instead of standing on street corners go to where the jobs are. If you came here uninvited or illegally well go back home and stop sucking off of the system.

Sadly, there are plenty of legal citizens that have that done genreationally to a fine science.

Newscum and his Soros cronies are destroying our country and do not care about the average citizen. This is such a sad state of affairs.

Start with recalling Newscum and let the wave go across the country. THe green team is out of control.

Jeff August 4, 2021 at 8:35 AM

Coming soon to every neighborhood. Hmmm, spoke before the WC City Council last night on a law enforcement issue.

sam Malone August 4, 2021 at 8:37 AM

Partly because many immigrants I know get paid under the table and are making great money but still collect “free” benefits from the government. That is a reality.

I volunteer a lot and see many of them hitting up religious organizations additionally, for vouchers for food and clothing. Reality is reality and call it out as to all of the side gigs people us to abuse the system.

JAY JAY August 4, 2021 at 10:07 AM

What makes you think that actual Americans aren’t a part of the problem? I see many Americans doing this as well… Its poverty that causes this scamming cycle and guess what! Poverty also exists in the U.S.A. and thousand of legal Americans do the very thing your accusing others to be the problem.

inmotion August 4, 2021 at 8:43 AM

Politics got nothing to do with it. You can’t police stupid.

Jeff (the other one) August 4, 2021 at 8:52 AM

I believe this is the 2nd murder in Concord this year, the first being (I believe) the poor victim killed on Hwy 4. Kind of tracking with last year, where there were 3 murders (Feb, July, September). Let’s hope that we this is the last…Will also be interesting to determine the circumstances. The homicide in PH sounds like a self defense situation, based on limited information. Concord Police do post crime stats by month, which is somewhat useful (scary).

Chris August 4, 2021 at 9:42 AM

Perhaps I see things through jaded eyes, but what my vision shows is a immigration system design to fail. Many immigrants are exploited by employers and many immigrants exploit the very system that allowed them to live in one of the best places for a fresh start.

JAY JAY August 4, 2021 at 9:58 AM

This is nothing new….
You actually see worst acts of violence , such as rampages on innocent people coming from white people. My point is screw all you discriminating the Hispanic culture. White culture is a part of the problem too but Whites don’t like to talk about it! Everyone has a roll in this not just Hispanics. Get real.

Anonymous August 4, 2021 at 11:42 AM

Of the three races – white, black and latino – only one of the three is arrested for less serious violent crime than their percentage of the US population, and that would be whites. Whites are 60% of the population and are arrested for 39% of US serious violent crimes. Latinos are 18% of the population and arrested for 21% of serious violent crimes. Blacks are 13% of the population and are arrested for 36% of serious violent crimes.

Data here
https://bit.ly/3jkqN96

Yes, the shooters could have been white, But in a heavily Latino area known for illegal aliens and crime, where residents confirm gunfire is not uncommon, violent crime is more likely to originate from Latinos.

I worked in Concord Gateway 2 from 2010-2013. Considering the building was less than half occupied due to the crash, the building management had a hell of a lot of security. It was because of the location.

Don’t get complacent, Claycordians. This kind of stuff always has and can happen anywhere.

FPN August 4, 2021 at 10:53 AM

@JAY JAY can we have examples. You cant put it out there without examples.

Whoe Jim August 4, 2021 at 8:09 PM

Newsom should place road signs at our northern and southern borders that say welcome to California where other taxpayers will pay for your future bills…wheee!!!

Dr. Jellyfinger August 6, 2021 at 7:48 AM

Well……. I can’t really blame the illegals from pouring into the USA…
WE LET THEM DO IT!

If you compare the rate of exchange in the countries they come from (USD vs Peso…or whatever) you will see why they come here & make about 12 x more than they’d make where they came from.

Alot of them are sending as much money as they can back down to Banana Land so their families can afford to live decently and save enough to retire down there while the kids work up here.

They try to escape poverty, behaving like ticks and the U.S. tax paying citizens serve as hosts for the parasites….then they say “Biden invited us”
(he did!)

Coming to the USA is like the California Gold Rush to these people.

Judy Brown August 6, 2021 at 9:21 AM

You know what is really SAD is how people use NEXTDOOR to vent and be rude to each other on various topics. This is not what this site is intended for. Others do not want to read your about your dispute and negative opinions. Try kindness in this time of dire need for all around you.
