A 16-year-old boy was shot in the stomach in Hayward last week. The incident happened on the sidewalk in front of St. Rose Hospital at 27200 Calaroga Avenue when the teenager was walking alone and was approached by three subjects on bicycles. "One of the subjects fired at least three rounds from a handgun at the victim, striking him one time in the stomach," said Lt. Roger Keener, Hayward PD.
The victim did not suffer life threatening injuries and is recovering.
According to Hayward Police the attack was not a robbery and did not appear spontaneous. The case is under investigation. Police are looking for the suspects described as possibly Latino or white, in their late teens or early twenties and were last seen wearing black hooded sweatshirts.
