Officer Involved Shooting Investigation
Date of Release: 03/14/17
Date/Time of Occurance:  03/14/2017 at 5:19 p.m.
Location of Occurrence: 25200 Carlos Bee Blvd.

Today at approximately 5:20 p.m., while in Hayward, Fremont Police detectives located a vehicle that was wanted in connection with multiple armed robberies in Fremont and throughout the Bay Area. The detectives attempted to stop the vehicle, which was reported as stolen, in an apartment complex located at 25200 Carlos Bee Blvd. As they contacted the occupants, the driver of the suspect vehicle suddenly rammed the detective’s police vehicles injuring two Fremont detectives.

During the incident, Fremont detectives were forced to fire their duty weapons at the suspect driving the vehicle and one of the female occupants was struck by gunfire. The vehicle continued to flee out of the complex and eventually crashed near the intersection of Campus Drive and Oaks Drive.

At least one male suspect fled the vehicle on foot and is outstanding at this time. He is described as a Black male adult, heavy build, 5’10” and short hair. A second female and another male occupant of the vehicle were taken into custody near the scene without incident. The female suffering from the gunshot wounds was treated by the Hayward Fire Department at the scene and transported to a near-by trauma center where she succumbed to her injuries. Her name is not being released at this time pending notification of next of kin.

Both injured Fremont PD detectives were treated and released from a local hospital.

At this time, there is only the one male suspect outstanding and an active search was conducted for him in the neighborhood near Campus Drive and Oaks Drive by the Hayward Police Department’s Special Response Unit (SWAT). The Hayward Police Department is the primary investigative agency into the Officer Involved Shooting, with the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office conducting a parallel investigation.

This is an ongoing investigation; therefore, no further information will be provided at this time. We will notify the community of the status of our search as changes occur.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident, is encouraged to contact Detective Steve Riley at 510-293-7034 or by emailing HaywardPDTips@hayward-ca.gov
