HAYWARD (KRON) — A murder has been reported in unincorporated Hayward on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.
A man was shot and killed, and he was found dead on the ground.
The sheriff’s office reported the homicide on Twitter at around 3:20 p.m. It happened in the 200 block of Willow Avenue, deputies said.
The man was shot while pushing a stroller with a 3-month-old baby inside. The baby was not hurt and is in protective care.
