Man, I pray for the victim and family. The crime is really getting bad in this little valley.

Maybe a gasoline heist. That’d be cool. What’s better than road rage? Just looking at them and smiling and wave. That’ll do more emotional damage than yelling back.

Randy March 23, 2022 at 2:23 PM

…yup…getting more like you know where…. nothing here… move along… move along

This is not good!

Violence is increasing

Were they from Oakland or Antioch/Pittsburg?

Jason March 23, 2022 at 4:13 PM

@BaltB – Sorry, but I rarely hear criminals coming from Concord. It’s always Antioch/Pittsburg, Vallejo, Oakland, etc.

Concord one March 23, 2022 at 6:30 PM

@Jason, concord has higher and more violent crime annual than Pittsburg…and more drug arrests. look it up!

@Concord one – Concord is widely known for having the lowest violent crime statistics for any city in the Bay Area its size. Property crime may be up there. Just check out violent crime stats for Concord, it is on par with Walnut Creek and Concord is almost double the size.

Haha hilarious, you guys are arguing about which town sucks slightly less…FYI, Concord is indeed a s-hole.

Tyler March 23, 2022 at 3:27 PM

Love how all articles no longer describe the suspect… Unless he’s white, then it’s ok. People clearly saw the suspect if they saw them jump out of the passenger seat. Woke/pc culture/liberal policies at their finest. RIP to the victim.

Oh, please March 23, 2022 at 5:41 PM

Well, a no description is kind of a description now. WE all know.

Googlar March 23, 2022 at 7:03 PM

They described exactly who did it. It was a BMW. It might have even been an SUV.

sam Malone March 24, 2022 at 8:28 AM


You hit the nail on the head. Reverse discrimination?????

redrazor March 24, 2022 at 12:40 PM

Sam: It is for sure “Reverse Discrimination” … just like all the TV advertisements that have no white folks in them. At least 75% “people of color” (especially black). I hope I can claim some of the welfare benefits that are due me as an under represented “minority” ??!!??

Carlos March 23, 2022 at 3:35 PM

I work right where it happened,apparently it’s a homicide.30+Police,choppers etc.Shooter on the run.

Bruh March 23, 2022 at 3:37 PM

Despite all this crime, I suspect this county will still vote 70%+ for democrats whether it be local, state, or federal.

You get what you vote for, citizens.

Drew March 23, 2022 at 6:59 PM

Just so you know, 7 of the top 10 states with the highest crime rate voted republican last presidential election, but go on…

Cyn March 23, 2022 at 7:46 PM

Apparently, their votes didn’t count.

Badge1104 March 23, 2022 at 8:35 PM

Well he’s been called orange man, big mouth, and mean tweeter. . . . but things were actually much better under Trump. Everything’s going to hell in a handbasket at home and abroad. 1 year of total control by the Democrats is causing a lot of damage at home and in the world!

PPM March 23, 2022 at 9:33 PM

Oh please, how out of context can you get by saying STATES…doesn’t matter what list it is, “highest violent crime”, “most dangerous” etc. and the vast majority of the CITIES on that list are Democrat-run hellscapes, and you probably don’t have to look far to find a woke, “restorative justice” DA nearby that good chance was Soros-funded.

Blindboy March 24, 2022 at 1:01 AM

Badge 1104 short term memory problem. Under the orange man let’s see, mass school shooting in FL, George Floyd murder, among other high profile murders. And what about Covid.

You can’t look at anyone wrong when your driving, keep your hands on The wheel and get where your going

Ancient Mariner March 23, 2022 at 3:45 PM

I came through there this morning – very scary.

PPM March 24, 2022 at 7:15 AM

Oh wow, you drove through the same place that thousands of people do every day, are you going to be okay after such a close call???

Exit 12A March 23, 2022 at 4:03 PM


More like “dead”.

Law enforcement will typically understate the situation then pronounce the person dead at the hospital… psychologically saves the public from the experience of seeing a dead body.

Sometimes not.

Cellophance March 23, 2022 at 4:05 PM


My thoughts and prayers for the family and friends of the victim.

A pox on the hose of the shooter.

I hope the shooter spends a long time in jail.

But this DA, I’m not so sure.

Barbara March 23, 2022 at 7:43 PM

You have the chance to change who the DA will be in June.
Take advantage of it.

Jason March 23, 2022 at 4:15 PM

If this stuff keeps happening in Lafayette & Walnut Creek now, money really can’t buy you safety anymore.

Lamorinda Larry March 23, 2022 at 11:55 PM

@Jason – No, “this stuff” doesn’t “keep happening” in Lafayette. This incident took place along a busy highway in an unincorporated location near the Lafayette/ PH border, not within city limits. Most Lafayette residents don’t even realize that the area has some Lafayette addresses, even though it’s functionally part of Pleasant Hill.

Not sure what you mean about “money can’t buy safety in Walnut Creek; WC has had a few freak murders recently (I recall one bum fight, one freeway road rage spillover, and 1 am gangland shootout near a seedy nightclub at the end of a dark ally in the shabbiest quadrant of town), but it’s still fairly safe for an lower-middle class exurb. Not a bad choice if you don’t want to to work hard.

Hanne Jeppesen March 23, 2022 at 4:19 PM

It happened in Lafayette, shooter could be from Lafayette, Walnut Creek, Oakland or anywhere. Does not matter where he is from he is a dangerous idiot with a short fuse, he needs to be off the streets

Mika March 23, 2022 at 5:03 PM

@Hanne Jeppeson Agreed!!

Mar March 23, 2022 at 7:22 PM

Yes so agree Some Family is without a love one tonight 😢

Gina March 23, 2022 at 4:49 PM

It’s nasty intersection. Every day I see man driving a Mercedes with his teenage daughter, running red lights, passing people in the opposite lane, and speeding. He lives on Reliez Valley Road.

RVT March 23, 2022 at 8:53 PM

Get the plates and report it. Don’t just keep watching that happen until something worse happens.

Fred C. Dobbs March 23, 2022 at 4:54 PM

Helicopters still circling the area.
Stay frosty out there people!

JG March 23, 2022 at 5:18 PM

@Gina, please try and get that license plate and report! That kind of negligence needs stopped. Prayers for the victim and family. Prayers for justice and locking up of the idiot criminal hot head.

The Fearless Spectator March 23, 2022 at 6:12 PM

Likely limo tint, 20”wheels, dealer plates, punched out trunk lock, and driver in the fully reclined position.

Hanne Jeppesen March 23, 2022 at 6:33 PM

What does the kind of car have to do with road rage. It’s the driver that’s at fault, l use to drive a charcoal grey BMW 528e, l certainly never engaged in road rage. The shooter is an idiot, he took life, the victim most likely leaves behind family, and the shooter’s life is ruined and he might have family that will be affected. For what because he got mad at how someone was driving!! As infuriating as a rude driver might be, it has no lasting negative effect on your life. Just chill.

Jojo The Circus Clown March 23, 2022 at 7:43 PM

Welcome to Contra Costa … the best place to raise a family … sighhh #yourvotesmatter

The Ellie March 23, 2022 at 7:56 PM

So tired of the increasing crime in our area, actually all of California. Liberal policies, returning criminals to the streets without bail, etc, etc. We need a DA who will actually take action and not be a coward when it comes to pressing charges. And our government pretends to know why people are leaving the state. Newsflash, it isn’t the homeless problem it’s the politics that give scumbags nore power than law abiding tax paying citizens.

Concerned Citizen March 23, 2022 at 10:42 PM

Shot in the stomach?

The government now needs to use this money from the gas they are making a killing off of and the taxes from people using third party payment apps like venmo and cashapp to start purchasing and distributing ballistic grade vests to civilians that have a right to own them and wear them to protect themselves.

Don’t wanna arm legitimate citizens wanting to defend themselves and their families? Vest up.

Don’t wanna prosecute criminals to the fullest extent? Vest up.

Can’t catch violent criminals in the heat of the moment? Vest up.

Defund they police to satisfy far left wing radical organizations and followers? Vest up.

The result? Better use of our tax money and less dead civilians like this one.

The Fearless Spectator March 24, 2022 at 7:25 AM

Perhaps our Governor can negotiate a long deal on a couple billion worth of Chinese made ballistic vests. Of course he would distribute them first to the LGBTQ community; its only fair……… Naturally these vests would be budgeted as “human infrastructure”.

Jimmy Junior March 24, 2022 at 1:43 AM

This sounds gang related or a targeted shooting. Stepping out of your car and shooting is an assassination not a drive by. It’s personal.

Mother of Dragons March 24, 2022 at 3:12 PM

Agree 100%…I don’t believe the “story” of road rage. Seems totally targeted.

I really think there’s a lot more to this story than you’ve seen here. Check out this video clip from a local news station; and you will have a lot more information than you’ve been given to date!! Very suspicious victim(?!?)
