2 dead in separate officer-involved shootings

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Two people are dead and a third person is in custody after separate officer-involved shootings in Union City and nearby Hayward.

The shootings - the third and four fatal shootings in the San Francisco Bay area involving police and suspects over the weekend - came after Union City police say a suspect pulled a gun on officers during a traffic stop Saturday night and after Hayward police say a suspect tried to run down an officer during a traffic stop early Sunday.

In the Union City shooting, police say the driver of a car ran from police after stopping his car and then pulled a handgun from his waistband.

In the Hayward shooting, police say an officer opened fire - killing a passenger in a car - when the driver maneuvered his car and tried to run over the officer.
