CARJACKING LEADS TO OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING

On Thursday, April 13, 2023, at approximately 3:20 p.m., Newark Police were alerted by community safety cameras that a carjacking suspect vehicle entered the City of Newark on Mowry Avenue. Officers located the suspect vehicle in the 39000 block of Cedar Boulevard. Additional officers including members of the Southern Alameda County Major Crimes Task Force and Fremont Police Department, arrived on scene and a high-risk stop was conducted. During the encounter, an officer involved shooting occurred. 
 
Officers immediately rendered aid and summoned emergency medical personnel, but the suspect did not survive. A second suspect was transported to a local area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A weapon was recovered on scene. No involved officers or bystanders were injured.
 
Newark Police Department Detectives are actively investigating this case with the assistance of the Fremont Police Department. Per protocol, independent investigations are being conducted by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office and the Newark Police Department’s Professional Standards and Training Unit.
 
Due to the complexity of these types of investigations, they can take a substantial amount of time to complete. We will release more information as it becomes available.
