Police Search For 3rd Suspect in Shooting Near Cal State East Bay Campus

Shelter in place ordered for University Village, later lifted, as police search Hayward neighborhood

Hayward and Fremont police late Tuesday night were still searching for a third suspect in a shooting earlier in the evening involving Fremont police officers near the Cal State East Bay campus, according to Hayward police.

The manhunt began about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday after a shooting at an apartment complex near the Hayward campus, and by late Tuesday night, two police forces, using a helicopter and SWAT teams, were still searching a neighborhood at Campus Drive and Second Street. Several officers could be seen walking the streets toting rifles.

Campus Drive and Second Street were shut down during the search and investigation. Police were checking vehicles leaving the area and telling residents who want to get in to find somewhere else to stay. They said it's for their own safety.

Earlier Tuesday, police said they had two suspects in custody and the third suspect, believed to be armed and dangerous, remained at large.

Police chased one suspect through Steve Beaty's neighborhood on Highland Boulevard.

"Cops were out with guns drawn, and I told my wife and kid to get inside," Beaty said.

University police issued a shelter-in-place order for University Village earlier Tuesday evening as police investigated "an incident" at the City View Apartments on Carlos Lee Boulevard. The order was lifted about 90 minutes later.

University spokeswoman Natalie Seulner said students and staff at the nearby student housing village on Carlos Lee Boulevard were told to shelter-in-place a little after 6 p.m., per campus police instructions, but she did not provide details.

Police added that students on the Hayward campus were not at risk.

Police did not provide details on what led to the shooting or why Fremont officers were involved.
