San Leandro Police Investigate Second Shooting Within a Week:
Earlier this morning, on September 11th, at about 4:20 am, the San Leandro Police Department Communications Center received a phone call regarding a burglary in progress.  The burglary was reported in the 2000 block of Adams Avenue.
Upon SLPD's arrival, officers learned of a shootout between burglary suspects and people tending to an indoor marijuana cultivation.
A security guard for the site was struck once by gunfire and is listed in stable condition.
A site manager, as he is being described, also associated with the indoor marijuana cultivation, was struck by gunfire multiple times and is listed in critical condition.
One burglary suspect was located at the scene.  He was shot at least once and is listed in critical condition.
As officers converged upon the area, they also located a U-Haul van fleeing the scene at a high rate of speed.  The U-Haul failed to yield to officers, and a vehicle pursuit into the City of Oakland commenced.  During the pursuit, the suspect(s) exited the van and entered a newer model silver Jeep.  While switching suspect vehicles, one suspect was caught on foot by San Leandro Police.  This suspect was not injured during the gunfire.  The U-Haul van was recovered and collected as evidence.  
The jeep was then pursued for several more minutes until it stopped, and two additional suspects fled on foot.  The pursuit terminated in the area of 31st Street and Martin Luther King Way.  The pursuit, in its entirety, lasted approximately 20 minutes.  The two suspects who fled on foot from the Jeep have yet to be captured.  The two suspects who eluded capture are described as "two younger-aged Hispanic males dressed in dark clothing."  Police recovered the Jeep.
This is an active investigation.
San Leandro Police will work with City Staff to determine if the marijuana cultivation was legal.
San Leandro Police will provide more investigative updates as they become available.
Anything with information regarding this incident is urged to call SLPD at 510-577-2740.
