Two Teens Shot and Killed at Union City School, Suspects Outstanding
Union City Police Department Press Release Update
In the early morning hours of Saturday November 23, 2019, two males, ages 11 and 14, sitting in a van in the west parking lot of Searles Elementary School (1800 Block of Sherman Dr.) in Union City, CA were confronted by unknown suspect(s) who shot into their vehicle multiple times.
Union City Police Dispatch received several calls reporting gunshots in the area, and officers were dispatched to investigate. Upon arrival, they found the victims’ vehicle in the parking lot and the two males suffering from gunshot wounds. One of the males (age 14) was pronounced deceased at the scene; the other male (age 11) was transported to a local trauma center but was pronounced deceased while en-route. Due to the age of the victims, the Union City Police Department will not be releasing their names.
The Union City Police Department is diligently looking into the motive for this tragic incident. At this time, the Department has not ruled out the possibility that the incident was gang-related, but that possibility is currently unverified. Crime scene investigators have collected several items of evidence, including shell casings. The investigation is ongoing, and the Department cannot provide a description of the weapons used, the caliber, or the number of weapons involved.
In a separate recent incident, on November 20, 2019, at about 12: 30A.M, two men were shot near 8th St and C St. in Union City. The two men were transported to a local hospital where they were treated and released. Although there is no evidence to show that these two incidents are linked, investigators have not ruled out that possibility.
The Department’s Investigations Unit is following-up on all available leads but currently does not have a suspect description for either of the shootings, the number of suspects involved, or motive(s) for the shootings.
