When officers arrived, they were unable to find the shooter or the victim or any evidence of a shooting.
About an hour later, officers from the California Highway Patrol informed Antioch police that they had responded to the scene of a vehicle collision on westbound state Highway 4 near Bailey Road in which a driver was found suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment and was expected to live, police said.
