Man arrested in fatal Conord shooting after police standoff

- A man died in the wake of a shooting in Concord early Saturday morning near the Brenden Concord 14 movie theater and a homicide investigation is underway, police said.

Police have arrested another man as a suspect in the killing. 

Around 1:50 a.m., Concord police got a report of a shooting in the 1900 block of Salvio Street near Adobe Street.

Officers arrived within minutes and found a 43-year-old man on the ground, according to police.

Police, fire and medical personnel tried to save the man, but he died at the scene, police said.

Police said witnesses identified a 27-year-old man as a suspect.

Officers attempted to arrest the man at his home in the 1900 block of Teresa Lane in Oakley but he was not there.

While looking for the suspect, the homeowners say the police raid left their home in an "unlivable condition".

Brad Jacobson says Concord Police came to his house on Teresa Lane in Oakley, looking for his son. He says police told him they had connected his son to the deadly shooting. Police put the entire neighborhood on lockdown while they searched the home. 

Jacobson says, "They were looking for my son, he wasn't here. And they of course would not take, you know which I understand, they wouldn't take our word for it. We're the parents".

Jacobson says the worst thing was that police shot his dog when it went after the Concord Police K-9.

He says his son is on probation but only visits the home and lives in a halfway house in Martinez. 

Later in the day, police learned that the suspect was in a vehicle crash and had been taken to a hospital.

Police said they arrested the suspect at the hospital. His name is not being released until officers interview other witnesses, police said.

Anyone with information about this investigation is encouraged to call Detective Greg Mahan at (925) 603-5817 or the Anonymous Tip Line at (925) 603-5836.
