Livermore Police Department investigating attempted murder.

On January 3, 2017, at 7:39pm, the Livermore Police Department was made aware of a victim who had been shot in Livermore. LPD officers responded to the area of Highland Avenue and Valley View Way where they located a white male adult who was suffering from a single gunshot wound. The victim was transported to a local hospital and is in critical condition.

Livermore Police Department detectives began investigating the case and determined that the victim, James Jewell (28 year old from Concord), came to Livermore to take part in a drug transaction. Jewell met with Blake Wayne Hansen (25 year old from Concord), Alexander James Diaz (23 year old from Salida), and Robert Delarosa (23 year old transient) in a parking lot on North Livermore Avenue. Jewell got into a vehicle with Hansen, Diaz, and Delarosa and they all left the parking lot together. Jewell was shot one time inside the vehicle. Jewell was then pushed out of the vehicle in the area of Highland Street and Valley View Way. Then Hansen, Diaz, and Delarosa fled the area.

LPD detectives located Hansen within a few hours in the City of Concord and took him into custody without incident on 1/3/17. Diaz was contacted on 1/4/17 and arrested. The vehicle used in this crime has been recovered and impounded. Hansen has been booked into jail for attempted murder and robbery. Diaz has been booked for robbery.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Robert Delarosa for attempted murder and robbery. Robert Delarosa should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Robert Delarosa is encouraged to contact LPD at 925-371-4987.

This is an active investigation currently being handled by the LPD Criminal Investigations Bureau. LPD will issue an updated press release when additional information is able to be released.
