The paramedic, a 51-year-old man, and the firefighter, a 38-year-old man, suffered what police said were non-life-threatening gunshot wounds and were taken to the hospital for treatment. Police said a patrol car and ambulance were also hit by gunfire.
Following the shooting, units pursued Williams onto Highway 4 toward Pittsburg and into Alameda County, police said. The car chase then made its way back into Contra Costa County and ended in Richmond when Williams hit a parked car. Williams still attempted to get away after the crash but was quickly arrested, police said. A gun was also located at the scene.
Following Williams’ arrest, Antioch police requested that the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office perform a welfare check at a Discovery Bay home on Newport Court.
