ANTIOCH — A teenage girl was shot and badly wounded Saturday after a brawl and shooting at the Antioch marina followed by gunfire near homes in the East Bay city, police reported.
A 14-year-old teenage girl was transported to a local hospital after suffering “life-threatening injuries” as a result of the shooting, the Antioch Police Department reported on Saturday.
The incident erupted with an altercation and shooting at the Antioch Marina, police said.
After that, gunfire was reported in the 1000 block of West 6th Street between K Street and L Street in Antioch, according to police.

“During the initial investigation, it was learned an altercation had occurred between a group of subjects at the Antioch Marina where shots were fired,” Antioch police said.
The gun battle resumed several blocks from the marina in the Antioch residential area.
