According to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, an overnight shooting in Hayward left two people dead and is being investigated as a double homicide.

Shortly after 1:30 a.m., a shooting happened at a hookah lounge at the block of Mission Blvd. Two people were killed and two others were injured in a shooting that happened after a fight, according to the sheriff’s office. There is no threat to the public at this time, according to authorities.

There was a person on the ground in front of the hookah lounge who was not breathing. The victim was pronounced dead after being taken to the hospital. One of the three people who came in for emergency care died at the hospital, according to two local hospitals. Two people are still in the hospital.
