Hayward police sergeant shot during traffic stop

HAYWARD — Authorities say a Bay Area police sergeant was shot during a traffic stop, but his condition was not immediately available.

Hayward Police Lt. Eric Krimm on Wednesday morning declined to release the condition of the sergeant.

Krimm said no arrests have been made.

The incident began at 3:15 a.m. Wednesday when the sergeant tried to stop a white Chevrolet pickup that was swerving on the road.

The driver stopped and there was a confrontation. Further details were not released.

Another officer reported that shots had been fired and an officer was injured.

Police later discovered a truck in Oakland with bullet holes. It matches a description of the truck involved in the incident. More details are expected later Wednesday.
