According to Pittsburg police, on Wednesday at 3 p.m. a shooting occurred at the Baskin-Robbins ice cream store at 4493 Century Blvd.

Officers arrived and found 43-year-old Robert Hopkins Jr. of Bethel Island suffering from several gunshot wounds. Hopkins was taken to Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch, where he died, police said.

After investigating, police identified Neal as the shooter and served search and arrest warrants at his residence, but he was not home, police said.

Police managed to speak to Neal on the phone, but he allegedly did not cooperate. Police then searched for Neal, but could not locate him, police said.

Police learned Sunday that Neal had turned himself in at the Martinez Detention Facility, where he was booked for the outstanding warrant, police said.

The shooting remains under investigation and police said they expect it to be reviewed by the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office later this week.
