US Marshals Deputy Involved in Unincorporated Hayward Shooting: Sheriff

A United States Marshals deputy was involved in a shooting Thursday afternoon in unincorporated Hayward, according to the Alameda County Sheriff's Office.

The shooting was reported on the 2800 block of Romagnolo Street while the deputy was serving a warrant in the Kelly Hill area.

Members of the Bay Area US Marshal Task Force on scene encountered a 26-year-old man wanted out of Louisiana for weapon- and drug-related charges, authorities said.

"While attempting to take the fugitive into custody, a dangerous encounter occurred and deputy marshal fired at the suspect who was in a vehicle," the Sheriff's Office said in a release.

The suspect suffered minor injuries after being struck by either a grazing bullet or flying debris, authorities said. The suspect was treated and released from a hospital. He remains in custody.

Nearby Fairview Elementary School was placed on lockdown as a precaution during the investigation.

No other injuries were reported.
