Three people were killed and three others injured in a shooting spree outside a party in an industrial area of San Leandro early Sunday morning.
Police responded to the corner of Alvarado Street and Aladdin Avenue based on a 911 call that shots had been fired in the area, according to a police spokesman. When officers arrived, they discovered that six people had been shot shortly after the party let out. Three were pronounced dead at the scene.
The deceased were a 19-year-old San Francisco woman, her 16-year-old friend and a 20-year-old Oakland man.
Two of the injured were taken to a hospital by ambulance and another wounded man drove himself there. Police did not yet know the severity of their injuries.
The party was held in a warehouse or office space and was advertised online. Police are still trying to track down the owners of the business park where the shooting happened, to see who rented the building out.
According to Twitter users, the party was an “Inked up” tattoo event at 661 Alvarado St. Witnesses said after the party ended they were approached by at least two gunmen who opened fire.
By Monday San Leandro Police released a sketch of a man in a hoodie who they say is a “person of interest” in the shooting. A Police Department spokesman stopped short of calling the man a suspect.
Police described the man as a black male with a light complexion, about five-foot-seven inches tall and weighing an estimated 150 pounds. He is thought to be between the ages of 18 to 21.
Police said he has black hair in dreadlocks with gold tips that extend just below the shoulders. He has a thin mustache and a goatee, and wears upper and lower gold teeth with canines and diamonds.
The city’s anonymous tip line is (510) 577-3278.
