Man shot in Hayward

Submitted By Lt. Roger Keener, Hayward Police Dept.

A 36-year-old man was shot in his residence located on the 27000 block of Gading Road in the Jackson Triangle neighborhood. The incident in which the victim suffered a life threatening gunshot wound to the head, happened on Wednesday, January 12 at about 4 p.m. according to police. He was taken to a local hospital and is in the ICU. The victim was conscious and communicating with emergency personnel prior to being transported, police said.

A 15-year-old juvenile, the son of the victim, was located in a nearby park and is now in custody. Although the case is in the initial stages of investigation, police believe that the juvenile could be responsible for the shooting. A motive for the shooting is still being investigated and all possible explanations are being evaluated. No one else was injured during this incident and a firearm has been recovered.

The Hayward Police Department has offered counseling to family members through the Youth and Family Services Bureau. Inspector Ritchie is investigating the case.
