HAYWARD, Calif. (KTVU) - A possible burglary in Hayward turned into an officer-involved shooting and prompted an active investigation to find one of two suspects in Oakland on Tuesday, authorities said.
In a Facebook post, Hayward police said that the shooting occurred about 12:45 a.m. in the 2500 block of W. Winton Avenue in Hayward. One suspect had been arrested and another was at large, Hayward police said.
No officers or civilians were hurt, Hayward police said. Police did not state the condition of the suspect following the shooting. They also didn't state who fired first, adding that "multiple shots were fired" in both Hayward and later in Oakland.
A witness at the scene said that police responded to a burglary call at a building on West Winton and two suspects were seen running out the back of a building. Hayward police did not confirm that this was a burglary, only that they were responding to an "in progress call."
The suspects took off and police followed them.
The chase went through San Leandro and Oakland, where police told KTVU they are helping out.
As of 6 a.m. Tuesday, there was an active search for one of the suspects near 106th and Bancroft avenues. Dozens of officers in military clothing and armored vehicles were out in force, video at the scene shows.
