CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) — Several charges have been filed against a Stockton man accused of shooting a firefighter and a paramedic in Antioch last week and the murder of another man in Discovery Bay.
The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office, Antioch Police Department and Brentwood Police Department filed their cases against 26-year-old Darryon Williams.
Williams is the suspect in Saturday’s drive-by shooting of first responders in Antioch, a murder in Discovery Bay and a robbery in Brentwood.
The Contra Costa D.A.’s Office has filed the following charges against Williams:
- Second degree robbery
- Shooting from a vehicle
- Assault on peace officer/firefighter with semiautomatic firearm (6 counts)
- Assault with a semiautomatic firearm (3 counts)
- Fleeing a pursuing peace officer’s motor vehicle while driving recklessly
On Feb. 20, first responders were initially working to give someone medical attention Williams allegedly drove by and opened fire. A paramedic was struck in the leg and a firefighter was shot in the foot.
Williams was arrested in Richmond after leading police on a cross county chase.
Investigators later revealed Williams is accused of shooting and killing 64-year-old Michael Iliff who lived at this house on Newport Court in Discovery Bay.
It’s believed that 31-year-old Kimberly Meeks was staying with Iliff. Detectives say she and Williams have a 4-year-old son.
Both have gone missing.
Police have released a picture of the vehicle they maybe traveling in.
It’s a dark colored Audi SUV with the license plate 8UKN742.
Detectives said they’re worried about the mother and child’s safety.
Williams remains in custody at the Martinez Detention Facility. His bail is set at nearly $10 million.
