Alameda Police Make Arrest in Connection To Two Alameda Shootings

Alameda police officers made an arrest of an individual in connection to two Alameda shooting earlier this year.

The suspect, a male juvenile, was arrested last week after an extensive investigation by Alameda Police Department (APD), US Marshalls and other agencies, according to APD. The suspect was apprehended in the City of Berkeley.

The juvenile, whose name was withheld, is alleged to be responsible for the Jan. 13 shooting on the 500 block of Santa Clara Avenue and the Jan. 24 shooting on the 1400 block of Park Street, which resulted in a teenage girl being struck (“Police Investigates Park Street Shooting,” Jan. 25).

The victim was walking along Park Street with two other individuals when the suspect fired multiple rounds, according to the APD daily activity log. It is unknown if the victim was the intended target or the two unidentified individuals accompanying her. The other two juveniles were not injured during the ordeal.

The victim’s injuries were non-life threatening. The case has been turned over to the Alameda County District Attorney's Office.
