Union City Police Release Photo of Suspect Car in Recent Double Murder
Union City Police Department Press Release 1/15/20
On 11/23/19 at approximately 01:26 AM, UCPD began receiving multiple 911 calls from citizens reporting gunshots heard in the area of Sherman Drive and Colgate Drive in Union City. Officers responded to the area and located two male victims who had suffered suspected gunshot wounds. The victims were in a parking lot belonging to Searles Elementary School (located near the 1800 block of Sherman Drive). One fourteen-year-old victim identified as Sean Withington of Union City was pronounced deceased at the scene. The second victim, eleven-year-old Kevin Hernandez of Union City was pronounced deceased while in route to a local trauma center.
Union City Police were given a video, which depicted what appeared to be shooting in the area where this homicide occurred.
Initially, the video was kept from the public due to its graphic nature and potential value in the investigation. Sometime during the investigation, the video was given to the media by a member of the community and it was broadcasted several times.
Through our investigation, we have been able to determine that the video is genuine, and it did in fact show, in part, what occurred in the early morning hours of November 23, 2019. The video appears to show two gunmen firing at the victim’s vehicle multiple times. The motive for the shooting is still unclear, however, we have not ruled out gang involvement.
Based on that video, other video surveillance, and tips from the community our investigators have been able to obtain a description of the vehicle used by the suspects. The vehicle is believed to be a silver 2014-2017 Toyota Camry (see attached photo). A similar vehicle photo is attached for reference.
