  1. Of course it wasn’t random. It’s gang related, and according to one poster — no one should be in fear. Tell that to the innocent family members. Or innocent people driving in the area at night that could’ve been shot and killed.

  2. Another shooting on Highway 4 — 1:12 a.m. The third in five days. Highway 4 between Concord and Pittsburg/Antioch is a war zone. Drive at you own risk.
