ANTIOCH -- A 17-year-old boy was shot in the leg Saturday at Williamson Ranch Park, but is expected to survive, Antioch police said.

The boy was found shot once in the 5000 block of Lone Tree Way at 5 p.m. Saturday. He was accompanied by two other men, ages 18 and 19, who were not injured. Police are continuing to work leads, but don't believe the incident to be gang-related, said Antioch Police Lieutenant Tony Morefield.

The incident is just one in a recent spate of shootings that have occurred in Antioch over the past two weeks, wounding 13 people and killing one. City officials vowed after a fatal shooting Tuesday afternoon to deploy a violent crime suppression unit in an effort to prevent future shootings.
