UNION CITY (CBS SF) — A 30-year-old Hayward man remains in critical condition after being shot at a Union City In-N-Out restaurant early Sunday morning.

Police are searching for a suspect in the shooting, 20-year-old Phi Pham of Hayward, whom they believe is a member of the “West Side Hayward” gang.

Sgt. Jared Rinetti said officers responded to the scene around 12:30 a.m. after Pham allegedly fired several rounds at a group of men sitting outside the fast food restaurant on Union Landing Boulevard.

The victim was shot in the chest and was rushed to a local hospital to be treated for life-threatening injuries, police said.

Rinetti said Pham and a few other men got into an argument with the 30-year-old victim and his friends before the suspect began shooting.

A couple of bullets shot through the restaurant’s glass windows during the incident, but none of the roughly 20 to 25 people inside were injured, police said.

Pham, who also goes by the nickname “Tommy”, is described as an Asian man weighing about 140 pounds and is 5 feet 7 inches tall with brown eyes and black hair, according to police records.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call the Union City Police Department at (510) 471-1365.

    The lack of education equals gangs, America need to invest more in education before our cities will become battle fields!

      Yeah, let’s start with your lack of education. Were you absent on “grammar day”?

    I was at union city landing for that whole ordeal. I pulled in to In/Out to grab something to keep me awake until I got home to watsonville. I pulled in the lot and see this huge group of guys and they all just stared me down. The security guard walked by me and looked a little concerned. I didn’t even bother getting out of my car. I drove over and grabbed a donut and a cup of coffee instead.

    As I pulled out that’s when all the officers started swarming. One drove right by who I am pretty sure was the shooter. They made the right turn and almost hit the light pole. The officer went right by after that the opposite direction.

    I literally missed this whole thing while I was ordering my donut.
