Union City police called in the Newark SWAT team this morning to help arrest a 15-year-old boy allegedly involved in a shooting Wednesday
night. The teen, whose name is being withheld due to his age, is one of three suspects police say shot a 19-year-old man shortly after 10 p.m. near 33325 Mission Blvd. The victim is in stable condition in a nearby intensive care unit, police said. The Newark police SWAT team helped arrest the suspect in his home early this morning, said Union City police Capt. Kevin Finnerty. “We had reason to believe that the suspect was armed and dangerous,” he said of the decision to use the SWAT team. The teen initially tried to hide, but tactical officers searched
the house and arrested him without incident, according to police. Police are still searching for the two remaining suspects. Finnerty said officers have received information from witnesses and community members and urge anyone with information to contact the police.
