Three suspects who led police on a lengthy chase from Hayward that ended in a one-car crash on Interstate Highway 580 in Oakland early Monday have been charged with assault with a deadly weapon, evading a peace officer and other offenses, Hayward police said. Lt. Mark Stuart said the additional charges consist of being a felon in possession of a weapon, carrying a loaded firearm in public with the intent to commit a felony, possession of a short-barreled shotgun, possession of a large-capacity rifle magazine, possession of a stolen firearm, possession of an assault rifle and possession of a concealed firearm by a criminal street gang.
Stuart identified the suspects, who are all from Hayward, as Timothy Ferman, 19, Michael Pulido, 21, and his younger brother, 19-year-old Joseph Pulido. The three men were scheduled to be arraigned in Alameda County Superior Court in Hayward this afternoon. Stuart said the chase began shortly after midnight on Sunday when Hayward police spotted a silver 2000 Toyota Camry being driven erratically in the area of West Tennyson Road and Tyrrell Avenue and began to follow it and the driver sped away.
Police pursued the car as it went on Interstate Highway 880 into Oakland. The driver then took I-980 to I-580 and crashed near Park Avenue on eastbound I-580, Stuart said. The car matched the description of a vehicle sought in a shooting that was reported at 2:52 p.m. Sunday near West Tennyson Road and Calaroga Avenue in Hayward, Stuart said. In the shooting, the occupants of the suspect vehicle were chasing another vehicle and fired shots at it, he said.
One of those shots struck an unintended target — a person sitting in another car, Stuart said. The victim’s injuries weren’t life-threatening, he said. After the crash on I-580 early Monday, the car’s three occupants were arrested and four weapons were collected from the vehicle, Stuart said. The vehicle had been stolen from San Jose, according to Stuart. He said police are still trying to determine if Ferman and the Pulido brothers were involved in the shooting Sunday afternoon.
