Trio attacks, shoots 20-year-old in Livermore

Young man found stumbling along Olivina Avenue

An apparently intoxicated 20-year-old was found stumbling along a Livermore street early Saturday morning with a gunshot wound and facial injuries,

Livermore police said.

Officers were called at 1:17 a.m. to the 1500 block of Olivina Avenue where a man was on the ground near a business entrance, police said.

Officers noticed the man had been attacked and his face was injured. It was later determined he had also been shot in the torso, police said.

A boy who had witnessed the attack said a trio of men physically attacked the 20-year-old and then one of the three suspects shot the victim in the torso.

The suspects were described as three men all about 20 years old wearing dark-colored clothing, police said.

Investigators later learned that the witness had also suffered a gunshot wound to the leg during the incident.

Both victims were taken to Eden Hospital in Castro Valley.

The first victim was taken into surgery and remains in critical condition. The witness was treated at the hospital and released with injuries not considered life-threatening, police said.

The shooting is being investigated as gang-related.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Livermore police at (925) 294-7565.

I worked emergency back in the 80s, and this kind of action was a regular feature of the night shift. It's sad to imagine the family environment that would produce this outcome across generations.
