Police Cordon Area Near BART Tracks For 2 Hours

Officers from San Leandro chased a group of teens in the vicinity of Castro Street after getting a report that at least one of them had a gun.


San Leandro police cordoned off the area around Castro Street from San Leandro Boulevard to Alvarado Street for about two hours Thursday afternoon while they chased a group of teens at least one of whom allegedly had a gun.

No shots were fired.

According to Lt. Jeff Tudor, the incident began about 3 pm when a 911 caller reported a man with a gun at the corner of Estabrook and San Leandro Boulevard.

Responding officers found a group of about half-a-dozen teens who seemed to be having an argument, Tudor said.

The teens immediately scattered in all directions, prompting police to throw a net around the neighborhood and institute a search.

Tudor said a couple of juveniles were caught and put in custody for resisting arrest.

Police also recovered a loaded handgun from the general area where one of the suspects fled.

The cordon was lifted about 5 pm.
