State authorities will not file any charges against any of the four Antioch police officers who fired their guns in the fatal police shooting of an unarmed 55-year-old Antioch resident in 2021, including one awaiting trial on civil rights violations tied to the department’s racist texting scandal.

Authorities said officers Ryan McDonald and Eric Rombough fired the majority of the 19 shots that hit Guadalupe Zavala on Dec. 10, 2021, as he ran in the direction of a Pittsburg police armored car a few feet from his burning Antioch home in the 3800 block of Dove Court. The two combined to fire approximately 45 times, the state’s Department of Justice said in its official report on the shooting.

Rombough is currently awaiting trial on multiple charges against him involving alleged civil rights violations by him and two other members of the Antioch Police Department.
