    In 2009, 36 cases in Chula Vista were tied to violent crime in Tijuana

    One man is dead after a shooting at Roberto’s Cocktail Lounge in Hayward. The shooting happened just before 2 a.m. Sunday  morning after a bar fight broke inside the lounge.

    The lounge is located on Mocine Avenue and Harder Road.

     According to Lt. Chris Orrey, the fight later spilled into the parking lot, where shots were fired.

    When police arrived, they said they found a large crowd.  Some of them were holding back the alleged shooter. Officials say it is still not clear whether the man meant to shoot the victim.

    Police performed CPR on the victim who was then transported to Eden Hospital where he later died.

     The victims name is not yet released.

     The shooting suspect is being held on a probation violation while the investigation continues.

     The shooting marked the city’s sixth homicide this year.

     Anyone with information is asked to call Hayward Police.
