Oakland resident Edward Johnson was arrested on Friday in connection with a shooting on Jan. 8 in the 18000 block of Robscott Avenue in unincorporated Hayward, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said.
Johnson was accused of shooting the victim and fleeing the area, leaving the victim with two non-life threatening gunshot wounds. Deputies found Johnson in his car in Oakland. And hourlong standoff with police ensued, with Johnson finally discarding a gun, the sheriff’s office said, that matched the characteristics of the gun used in the Jan. 8 shooting.
The sheriff’s office said they arrested Johnson with the help of officers from the Oakland Police Department.
