Antioch Police Chief Steven Ford will be on hand for the city’s first community forum of the year at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Those attending the District 1 event will have the opportunity to hear from Chief Ford and meet several of the city’s officers. The two-hour community forum will be at Contra Loma Estates park at 1203 Sycamore Drive.
Earlier in the day on Sycamore Drive, just blocks away, police responded to calls about a possible shooting near Peppertree Way just after 10:45 a.m. A man, who suffered at least one gunshot wound, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. It was the city’s first homicide of the year.
The police department plans to hold community forums in each district, rotating them throughout the year.
