A man was suspected of holding his estranged wife and baby at gunpoint, shooting another family member in the neck, then fleeing with his wife and the child, leading police on a chase to Concord and back, and ultimately barricading himself in a Pittsburg home. Officers fired a 40 mm projectile, designed to be “less-lethal,” at him, and he allegedly returned fire at officers and was shot and killed.
