ANTIOCH -- A 38-year-old Antioch man was shot and killed outside a hotel early Saturday, but the killer remains at large, police said.

The victim's name was not released by police.

The man was shot multiple times in front of the hotel in the 500 block of E. 18th Street. The name of the hotel was not released, and it was not clear early Saturday if the man had been a guest there.

Police and paramedics arrived about 3:45 a.m. and tried to resuscitate the man, but he was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene.

Police did not release a motive in the killing, and no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information about the shooting, which was Antioch's third homicide of the year, should call the investigations unit of the Antioch Police Department at 925-779-6884.
