Police activity has shut down a residential street in Union City this afternoon, residents said. Officers have swarmed the 32400 block of Darlene Way, but police have not released details about what is happening. Lawrence Hudson, who lives on that street, said that when he returned from walking his dog mid-morning, Union City police told him to stay indoors because shots had been fired at a home nearby. He said it there is a large police presence on the street, including a SWAT team. Lois Nugyen, another resident of Darlene Way, said at about 1 p.m. that police had surrounded a home three houses down from her and were pointing their guns at it.
She said she was at home with her husband late this morning when she saw a man run into her backyard. “My husband saw him and opened the patio door and said, ‘What are you doing in my backyard?'” Nguyen said. The man then jumped over a fence into her neighbor’s yard and disappeared, she said. She described him as a tall young black man with a thin build wearing a white T-shirt. Nguyen said police arrived in the neighborhood a short time later and shut down the street. She said she went to the front yard at one point to water her plants and police told her to go back indoors.
Aisha Knowles, a spokeswoman with the Alameda County Fire Department, did not have details on the incident but said an ambulance is waiting nearby in case medical attention is needed.
