Hayward police are investigating a car chase and officer-involved shooting that turned deadly Sunday morning.
Police said it all began when an officer, who had a non-police person riding along with him, tried to pull over a car that was driving recklessly around 3:20 a.m.
The driver, identified as Arthur Pakman, 23, of Oakley, stopped and the officer got out of the car. But Pakman ignored the officer's instructions and drove his car aggressively towards the officer, the person who was with the officer and the patrol car.
The officer shot at the car in as the car drive into the door of the police car and minorly injured the the police car passenger. Then the car driven by Pakman sped off.
The police officer then got back into his car and drove after Pakman, but lost sight of him.
Police and witnesses saw the car moments later when Pakman's car drove off Foothill Boulevard near Fletcher Lane and first hit a sign, then a large planter box.
Pakman got out of the car and ran a short way before collapsing on the ground. He was injured, presumably from the crash.
A man who had been in the drivers seat of the car was found dead. He had been shot at least once. Police said they were not sure whether the man had died from the gunshot wound, or because he was hurt in the crash, or both.
Pakman was booked into jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and homicide.
The man in the passenger seat has not yet been identified.
The deadly, officer-involved shooting incident is one of four to occur this weekend.
On Saturday, San Jose police shot and killed a man after a high speed chase, Daly City police shot and killed a man after a chase near Candlestick Park, and Union City police shot a man who allegedly aimed a gun at them.
