ALAMEDA (CBS SF) — Alameda police investigators were seeking video surveillance footage of a suspect arrested in a shooting last week as well as anyone who may have seen him.

On Wednesday at around 3:20 p.m., officers responded to the area of Webster St. and Central Ave. on reports of a possible shooting. While en route, they were advised that a white SUV with a possible victim was heading eastbound on Central Ave, Alameda police said.

Police officers found the vehicle and among its passengers was a female victim with a gunshot wound to her leg.

It was determined that the shooting had occurred in the parking lot located behind Mountain Mike’s Pizza on the 700 block of Central Avenue and a possible suspect was captured on surveillance video walking through nearby Neptune Plaza Shopping Center.

Police investigators were looking to recreate the events before and after the shooting; in particular, the route the suspect took when traveling from the areas of Webster & Central to 3rd & Brush.
The suspect, 6’2”, 135 lbs, was believed to have traveled on foot in a white, red, and blue color-blocked styled shirt with dark-colored shorts. Anyone who may have seen the suspect or captured him on a surveillance video in the area between 3rd and Brush, Woodstock Park and the Neptune Plaza Shopping Center was asked to contact APD’s Violent Crimes Unit at 510-337-8538.
