Police: Man found with serious stab wound after reports of gunfire near downtown Pleasanton

Victim 'expected to survive'; investigation continues

Pleasanton police are investigating the circumstances of a man being found with a stab wound to the neck soon after reports of gunfire came in on Bernal Avenue near downtown on Friday night.

The victim, who was ultimately located at a gas station in Sunol, is being treated for the serious injury and is expected to survive, according to Pleasanton police Lt. Roy Gamez.

The incident began as an altercation at a private residence, with calls to police reporting gunfire near the 4800 block of Bernal Avenue – across the street from the police station – and a man seen bleeding a short distance away around 9 p.m. Friday, Gamez said. The fight occurred outdoors at the Civic Square Apartments complex.

Police officers responded, discovered shell casings and tried to locate the injured person in the area but could not, Gamez said. The man was soon spotted by Alameda County Sheriff's Office personnel at a gas station in Sunol.

"His vehicle had bullet holes and he was found with a stab wound to the neck. The victim was transported to a hospital where he’s expected to survive," Gamez said.
