ANTIOCH -- Fearing for their safety, Concord police officers fired several rounds at a man who was attempting to elude capture Friday night, fatally wounding him, according to police.

At 9 p.m., officers closed in on a home in the 2700 block of Barcelona Circle in Antioch where they had been conducting surveillance, Concord police Lt. Steve Dyer said in a statement. Concord detectives had secured a search warrant for the home based on suspected "dangerous drug sales" by a 21-year-old male resident, he said.

During surveillance, the suspect, who has not been formally identified, came out of his home and got into a vehicle driven by another man. As officers attempted to contact the suspect to serve the search warrant, the driver of the vehicle accelerated rapidly and rammed a police car, occupied by an officer, Dyer said.

The suspect then ran from the car and two officers fearing for their safety shot him, Dyer said.

He died of his injuries.

According to ABC 7 news, family and witnesses told them that 21-year-old Charles Burns was the man who was shot.

The driver of the suspect vehicle, a 21-year-old old Bay Point resident who has not been identified by police, was uninjured and taken into custody. He was later interviewed by investigators and booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer.

The officer-involved shooting is being investigated by a multi-agency investigative team comprised of officers from the Antioch Police Department, the Concord Police Department and the Contra Costa County District Attorneys Office, according to Dyer.
