APD Officers Arrest Shooter

An Alameda man was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on Wednesday, Sept. 16 for allegedly shooting a woman in the leg the same day in the parking lot of Mountain Mike’s Pizza at 714 Central Ave.

Shamari Hill, 22, is alleged to have shot his victim around 3:20 p.m., according to Alameda Police Department (APD) reports. An APD officer was dispatched to Webster Street and Central Avenue for what initially was described as suspicious circumstances.

Another caller indicated the incident involved a possible shooting. Additional officers were dispatched to the scene. Within minutes, officers located the shooting victim in a white SUV.

After further investigating, officers determined Hill was the shooter. Hill was arrested about a mile away in the area of Third and Brush streets at 4:30 p.m., according to the report.

Hill was already on probation at the time of the shooting. According to Alameda County Superior Court records, Hill was placed on three years’ probation on Sept. 2, after pleading no contest to misdemeanor battery for an incident that took place Jan. 22. He was initially charged with corporal injury to a cohabitant or spouse, but the charge was lessened to battery.

Hill had his arraignment and probation revocation hearings on Tuesday, Sept. 22, after the Sun went to press.
