Police arrested a suspect in a shooting at an In-N-Out Burger restaurant in Union City early Sunday morning that critically injured a Hayward man. Phi Pham, a 20-year-old Hayward resident, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder around 2 p.m. on Sunday, Union City police Lt. Ben Horner said.
Officers responded to the shooting at around 12:30 a.m. Sunday after Pham allegedly fired several rounds at a group of men sitting outside the fast food restaurant on Union Landing Boulevard, Sgt. Jared Rinetti said. Rinetti said Pham and a few other men got into an argument with a 30-year-old Hayward man and his friends before the suspect began shooting.
The Hayward man was shot in the chest and rushed to a hospital to be treated for life-threatening injuries. Police said today that the victim is stable and expected to live. A couple of bullets shot through the restaurant’s glass windows during the incident, but none of the roughly 20 to 25 people inside were injured, Rinetti said.
Pham, who also goes by the nickname “Tommy”, is a documented Hayward gang member associated with the “West Side Hayward” gang, according to Horner.
