At around 9:30 p.m., dispatchers received reports of gunfire in the 500 block of Victoria Court in the city’s Broadmore District neighborhood, police said in a statement Monday.
When officers arrived, they found signs of gunfire, including multiple shell casings, and it was learned that two groups of people exchanged words before seven men pulled out their guns and fired at each other.
Police said the two men who were shot were taken to hospitals and treated for fatal injuries.
Detectives’ investigation showed that the incident was targeted, the two groups knew each other.
“It’s unbearable that so many suspects will start firing indiscriminately near a densely populated residential area,” San Leandro Police Lt. Matthew Burgas said Monday.
“We had very good people who inadvertently fall victim to such heinous, violent crimes.”
