Suspects attempting to rob a woman last Saturday in San Leandro shot and killed her son-inlaw, San Leandro police said. The 33-year-old victim, an Asian male, lived in Alameda. The murder was San Leandro's first in 2013.
A 911 call brought San Leandro police to the 15500 block of Harbor Way about 9:20 p.m., according to San Leandro Police Department (SLPD) spokesman Lt. Jeff Tudor. When officers arrived they found the man on the sidewalk suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. Paramedics transported the victim to the hospital, where he died.
Tudor said that two suspects approached the woman while she was unloading her car.
When her son-in-law came out of the house, one of the suspects shot him, Tudor said. The suspects fled the area in a dark-colored sedan.
Police did not release the name of the victim. Tudor said that SLPD is looking for the suspects but have made no arrests.
"We are asking anyone with information call SLPD," Tudor said. "They can call 577-3230 or leave an anonymous tip at 577-3278."
