A woman sleeping on a couch in a Hayward home suffered head and neck wounds early Wednesday when bullets ripped through a front window, authorities said.
Hayward police said the shooting took place around 12:30 a.m. in the area of Smalley Ave. and Flagg St.
The victim, a 24-year-old woman, was rushed to Eden Hospital where she underwent emergency surgery. Her condition was not known.
Witnesses told KTVU that a couple was engaged in a heated argument across the street from the home right before gunshots were heard. Police would not speculate whether or not the argument triggered the gunfire,
Investigators also were checking on a late 1970s model car seen speeding from the area immediately following the gunfire.
