May 20, 2020

HAYWARD, Calif., May 20, 2020— We are actively investigating an officer involved shooting that happened today, at about 2:27PM. Our officers conducted a traffic stop in the area of Wildwood Street/Kelly Street.

During the contact, officers discharged their service weapons.  At this point, we are still investigating to determine what led to that outcome.

The man, in his 20’s, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

If anyone has any information that can assist this investigation, please call Detective Mulhern at 510-293-7176.

We are not releasing any identifying information of the officers. This remains an ongoing investigation as witnesses and officer testimony is gathered and analyzed.

Anytime the Hayward Police Officers use force, regardless of degree, it is a serious matter that requires a thorough investigation. In addition to an internal investigation, that Alameda County District Attorney’s Office has been notified and will conduct an independent investigation. 

We want to thank the community for their patience while we continue to investigate.  We are committed to providing additional information as soon as the investigation allows.
