Police have now launched a homicide investigation into the death of the victim, a 21-year-old man.

One suspect, a 19-year-old woman from Martinez, was arrested Tuesday evening, but a second suspect in the shooting is still at large and believed to be in Oakland, officials reportedly said.

Officials identified the second suspect as Sione “Ono” Amanaki, a 20-year-old man from Concord, the Bay Areas’ The Daily reported.

Officers arrived at the scene in the area of Solano Way and Broadmoor Avenue after receiving a call at about 9:48 a.m. regarding gunshots, police said. 

Police said two people were found with gunshot wounds; a 21-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene, and the other person was taken to the hospital. KTVU reported that the wounded individual was the 21-year-old’s stepfather. 

Lieutenant Sean Donnelly with the Concord police told SFGATE that the surviving person is in critical condition. He said the motive is “most likely drug-related.”

Concord police said the investigation is still ongoing.
