    A 36-year-old man armed with a shotgun is recovering after he was shot by a police officer in Antioch this afternoon.

    At about 2:20 p.m., officers attempted to serve an arrest warrant in the 2200 block of Reseda Way to Paul Morales.

    The Antioch resident is wanted for a parole violation and a recent felony child abuse charge, according to the Police Department.
