A man who was fatally shot by suspects attempting to rob the man’s mother-in-law in San Leandro last week has been identified by the coroner’s bureau as 32-year-old Castro Valley resident Delun Pan. Police received a 911 call reporting the shooting in the 15500 block of Harbor Way around 9:20 p.m. on Friday, San Leandro police Lt. Jeff Tudor said.
Officers arriving on the scene found the victim lying on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to the chest, Tudor said. Pan was taken to a hospital where he died from his injuries a short time later. Police said two suspects approached Pan’s mother-in-law as she unloaded items from her car with the intention of robbing her. Pan came out of the house to help his mother-in-law and one of the suspects shot him, Tudor said. The suspects fled the area in a dark colored sedan headed for Lewelling Boulevard.
Police said investigators are actively searching for the suspects but have made no arrests. Police said the killing is San Leandro’s first homicide this year. On Monday, the San Leandro City Council approved up to $10,000 as a reward for anyone who provides information that leads to the capture and conviction of the suspects that are responsible for the homicide, police said. San Leandro police Lt. Randall Brant said in a statement on Tuesday that the city hopes the reward money will generate leads that will aid in the investigation and reveal the identity of the suspects.
