A man who was found fatally shot in a parked car in front of his home in San Leandro on Sunday morning may have been involved in criminal activity, police said. However, San Leandro police said they don’t want to release the man’s name or many other details about the crime because there’s still an active investigation under way.
Officers responded to a report of an unresponsive man in a parked car with its engine running in a driveway of a home in the 400 block of Kenilworth Avenue at about 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, police said. The man had injuries consistent with being shot and police said he was pronounced dead at the scene. The case was ruled to be a homicide after an autopsy was conducted, according to police.
San Leandro police said the victim lived at the residence where the crime occurred and the incident was not a random act of violence. In a statement, San Leandro police said, “Although police have not established a motive for the murder, they are investigating the possibility that the victim or others at the residence may have been involved in some sort of criminal activity.”
Police said they haven’t identified a suspect at this time. Lt. Robert McManus said San Leandro police are “committed to doing everything possible to identify and arrest the person responsible for this violent crime in this quiet neighborhood.” McManus said area residents who have a video camera system or any information about the homicide should call San Leandro police at (510) 577-2740.
