HAYWARD — A suspect in a bar shooting early this morning was shot and killed by police in Hayward after driving toward police officers, a Hayward police lieutenant said.

Police responded just before 1 a.m. to a report of a shooting at the Dirty Bird bar at 29308 Mission Blvd. in Hayward, according to Lt. Roger Keener.

Officers learned that the suspect in the shooting had left the bar and was driving a dark-colored Buick or Cadillac, police said. Police searched the area and located a vehicle matching that description on Tennyson Road west of Mission Boulevard.

After attempting to initiate contact with the driver, the suspect apparently reversed his car toward the police officers. Fearing for their safety, the officers shot the driver, killing him, according to police.

No officers were injured.

After an initial investigation into the bar shooting, police believe the suspect was involved in a confrontation at the Dirty Bird in which at least one patron was shot, police said. That victim suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and has been treated at a hospital and released.

The suspect killed by police gunfire has not been identified.

The three officers involved in the shooting have been placed on routine administrative leave pending an investigation.

Yeah, well too bad Juanito, that scumbag was using that vehicle as a deadly weapon and the police needed to protect their lives before that punk killed them.
