Police Investigating Junction Avenue Shooting

Authorities say residents report up to six gunshots fired on Junction Avenue, near North K and Pine streets.

Police are investigating a shooting reported Monday night on Junction Avenue, near North K and Pine streets.

Officers were sent to the area at 7:07 p.m. after police received calls from residents reporting gunshots fired in the area, Livermore Police Sgt. Todd Madrid said.

Witnesses also told police that two vehicles sped off from the scene after the shooting.

Preliminary reports say the two vehicles suspected of being involved in the shooting are a light-colored minivan and dark-colored truck, Madrid said.

Officers at the scene found two bullet shell casings and shattered glass that appeared to have been from a vehicle, Madrid said.

Police at this time have no further information and have not received any reports of injuries.

Monday's apparent shooting is two days after police were sent to a reported stabbing near the McDonald's restaurant at Chestnut and North P streets.

Hmmm...The majority of people in this area are....?

Let me finish that sentence. The majority of the people in this area are human beings like all of us. A few bad elements can happen in any neighborhood. Contact the city and get a Neighborhood Watch group going and contact the police if you witness suspected criminal activity. You can do it anonymously.

Opening a LPD substation in the nearly vacant stripmall on Chestnut would be a good start.

What a good idea!
Vel November 30, 2012 at 10:58 PM
All of these things could be resolved if LPD would follow up with anonymous tips. I've reported many things I've seen n heard. Dispatch asks you a bunch of stupid questions, like if you're the perp.
More police needed in Livermore November 30, 2012 at 11:32 PM
The people of Livermore need to push the city management to fund for a gang/narc unit. They disbanded the unit awhile ago and look what is happening to the city.

Will all the revenue generated from the Paragon Outlets, this city should have no problem hiring more officers and get a handle on this area.

Sorry Maureen. When we moved into this area 20+ years ago, it was a pretty diverse area.A place where people took pride in their homes and properties. Not anymore. We have houses that rent to over 5 families and along with that comes their 20 cars. It is no longer safe to walk around here and we are the ones made to feel we are living in a foreign country, Many, and I say many are undocumented. We never had tagging, shootings, or stabbings in this area until it became more prevalent the last 7-8 years and it is only getting worse. It is unfortunate that the majority of the people won't get involved and as far as forming a neighborhood watch? Impossible when these same people that are the problems are living in your area. People are to scared. I can't wait to get the heck out of here!
