HAYWARD (CBS SF) — A man was killed during a shooting and police pursuit in Hayward early Sunday morning, police said.

At about 3:30 a.m., a patrol officer and a civilian ride-along passenger followed a vehicle driving erratically on Foothill Boulevard, according to Hayward police.

The suspect driver — who was later identified as Arthur Packman, 23, of Oakley — drove into the driveway of a business and stopped the vehicle, according to Hayward police.

There was an adult male passenger in Packman’s vehicle, police said.

When the officer got out of the patrol car, Packman allegedly drove directly at the police vehicle in an apparent attempt to ram it, police said.

The officer fired several shots at the oncoming vehicle, which crashed into the patrol car door and caused a minor injury to the civilian passenger, police said.

Packman then sped onto Foothill Boulevard, where additional responding officers saw him lose control of his vehicle and crash into a sign near Fletcher Boulevard, police said.

The suspect then got out of the driver’s seat and ran a short distance before collapsing from injuries sustained in the crash, police said.

Packman’s passenger, an adult male, had suffered at least one gunshot wound and died at the scene, police said.

Investigators were trying to determine if the passenger died from gunshot wounds.

The case remains under investigation by the Hayward Police Department.
