1 man dead, second man wounded after car crash, shooting in Hayward

One man is dead and a second man hospitalized after a shooting in Hayward that appears to have been sparked by a car crash.

Police say they received a number of 911 calls from several people
around 5:30 p.m. Thursday reporting several shots had been fired near the intersection of Saklan Rd.and Winton Ave.

Some of the callers also said the gunshots came after a crash at the intersection.

Hayward police Sgt. Mark Ormsby says when officers arrived at the intersection they found a 22-year-old man shot and killed at the scene of the collision.

As of late Thursday, the man had not been positively identified.

A short while after officers had responded to the shooting, police received a call from officials at a local hospital who said a man suffering from a gunshot wound had been dropped off at the facility.

Ormsby described the shooting of that man as “related” to the shooting at the crash.

Police say the second shooting victim -- a 48-year-old man -- is in stable condition, and is expected to survive. His name is not being released.

The two vehicles involved in the crash -- an SUV that had run off the roadway and came to a halt by a fence, and a sedan that had extensive damage -- were towed away from the scene late Thursday.

Investigators have not identified any suspects.

The incident Thursday night comes after three people were shot and wounded in Hayward over the weekend.

Early Saturday three men were hospitalized with what police described as non-life threatening injuries after two separate and unrelated shootings.
