Livermore police continue their search for the suspect who opened fire in a Livermore bowling alley bar on Saturday night. The incident left 1 dead and 2 others hospitalized. 

According to Livermore police, there is no new information regarding the deadly shooting. Authorities said additional updates would be posted to the department’s social media.

Police said an altercation at the bar located inside the bowling alley bar led to the fatal shooting. Two injured victims remain hospitalized but in stable condition. 

The incident began around 6 p.m. in the bar area of Granada Bowl, located at 1620 Railroad Ave, Livermore police spokesman Sgt. Steve Goard said. 

“It started out as a fight between four individuals,” Goard told reporters at a Saturday night news conference. “It ultimately led to one person shooting and fleeing the scene. Our officers arrived on scene and were able to determine that three adults were injured as a result of the shooting. Two were transported to the hospital and one victim was declared deceased at the scene.”

“One of the patrons involved pulled out a gun & fired several rounds striking 3 adult victims,” Livermore police added in a tweet.    

A teenager described the incident and said one of the victims was his relative. 

“I was over by the vending machine and then so I heard five gunshots, and like I ran out,” said the teen who wanted to remain unidentified. “And then from there, my cousin came out running, too. And she told me there was one person that died immediately, and one guy got hit in the chest, in the back, and that guy was my uncle.”

Gourd said the shooter and the victims knew each other. 

The deceased victim was identified as a 28-year-old man. His identity is yet to be released pending notification of his next of kin. 

The shooter remains at large, and police have not yet released any information. Witnesses are being interviewed to get a better description of the shooter.
