Local Sacramento cosplayer and convention community member Autumn Breeze was recently injured when she was struck in the head by a stray bullet from an on street shootout. What the news doesn’t tell you is who Autumn Breeze is as a person. I recently met Autumn at Central Valley Con. She was curious about the Geek Fashion Show so we discussed getting her involved. She made a joke about being tall so everyone tells her she should be a model. I told her it wasn’t how she looked that made her perfect for the show, it was who she was. I found her to be completely unassuming, sweet, and a very down to Earth gal. She had plans to be in an upcoming show, and as soon as she is able we’d love to have her onstage. We contacted Autumn’s family asking for a statement, they declined stating they were currently too distraught to comment. We respect their position and privacy during this trying time. The current update on Autumn is she is out of surgery. She remains stable with no additional swelling to her brain. Everyone is hopeful the existing swelling will begin to slowly decrease and pull her closer to a full recovery. We wish Autumn and her family all the best and hope for a speedy recovery.
Please take the time to donate or share the Go Fund Me set up to help cover Autumn’s medical expenses.
The following is the report of the actual incident.
The Antioch Police Department announced the arrest of three individuals after a shooting Monday left two people injured.
Police responded to the area of Cavallo Road and E. 18th around 11:20 on the report of shots being fired. Upon arrival officers located two victims at separate locations who had been struck by gunfire. Those victims were transported to area hospitals and were taken into surgery.
According to Sergeant Tom Fuhrmann, Kamani Stelly (18) of Antioch and Cody Moss (25) of Antioch were walking on Cavallo Road near E. 18th Street at approximately 11:25 hours on Monday when they had a verbal confrontation with another group of individuals near Little Caesars. Stelly and Moss began walking back to the apartment they were associated with in the 1600 block of Cavallo Road when Moss pulled out a handgun he had concealed and gave it to Stelly.
Fuhrmann says Stelly opened fire on the group from a considerable distance and struck a 26 year old Antioch man that was in the group they had just had the confrontation with.
Simultaneously, a vehicle was struck by the gunfire that was westbound through the intersection of E. 18th Street and Cavallo Road. The vehicle was occupied by three adults and a 5 year old child. A 23 year old female from Antioch was a passenger in the vehicle and was subsequently struck by the gunfire.
Both shooting victims were transported to an area hospital and both underwent surgery. The male victim is in stable condition with non life threatening injuries. The female victim remains in critical condition at this time. No other injuries were reported.
Investigators on scene detained three people of interest and brought them to APD for interviews. The three were Stelly, Moss and Ronvell Scheneck (20) of Antioch.
After interviewing the three, as well as multiple witnesses and reviewing an abundance of video footage from the area and evidence, all three were arrested and booked into the Contra Costa County Jail.
- Stelly was booked on two counts of attempted murder and unlawful discharge of a firearm.
- Moss was booked on two counts of attempted murder and unlawful discharge of a firearm as well as a couple of other weapons violations.
- Scheneck was booked on one count of being an accessory after the fact and a probation violation.
Antioch Police Detectives plan on filing this case with the Office of the District Attorney later this week.
