ANTIOCH -- Two people were killed in a shooting Sunday evening in an unincorporated area of Contra Costa County, authorities said.

Contra Costa Sheriff's deputies responded to a shots-fired call at 5:25 p.m. on Buchanan Road about a quarter-mile west of Somersville Road, in a small slice of land between the Pittsburg and Antioch city limits. They found the two victims, a man and a woman, at the scene, according to sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene about 20 minutes later, Lee said. The woman was taken to Sutter Delta Medical Center, where she was also pronounced dead.

There is no suspect information at this time, Lee added.
