OAKLAND -- A suspect was shot by a California Highway Patrol officer around 9 p.m. Tuesday in an altercation that also left a police dog wounded by gunfire, the second shooting of the day involving the CHP.
The conditions of the injured suspect and canine were not immediately known, according to CHP Officer Daniel Hill.
The evening shooting occurred in the 5200 block of Wentworth Avenue near International Boulevard in East Oakland. No officers were injured. Further details about what led up to the shooting were not immediately available.
Earlier Tuesday, CHP officers shot and killed a 19-year-old driver who led them on a chase through East Oakland, then fled the vehicle with a gun in hand.
That incident began around 2:53 a.m. when officers tried to stop a BMW with no license plates that was ultimately determined to be stolen.
When the driver, identified as Antonio Mestas of Oakland, turned into a dead end, he got out of the car with the pistol and was shot by the officers. Mestas was pronounced dead at the scene. It was the first fatal officer-involved shooting in Oakland of the year.
Also on Tuesday, a BART police sergeant was accidentally shot and killed by his partner during a search of a robbery suspect's apartment in Dublin, marking the first officer killed in the line of duty for that transit police department.
