Police closed off Olive Street Saturday night as part of an ongoing investigation of a Friday night shooting that injured a 25-year-old Newark man.
Members of the Southern Alameda Major Crimes Task Force and the Newark-Union City SWAT Team began searching the 37000 block of Olive Street around 6:30 p.m. with an objective to gather evidence and information about the shooting, said Commander Tom Milner of the Newark Police Department.
The shooting is said to be gang related, Milner said.
"This is still an active, fluid incident," Milner said. "[We're] trying to identify those who were possibly involved in the shooting incident and searching for witnesses.
Saturday night's operation comes after officers responded the 37200 block of Olive Street around 11:11 p.m. on Friday after reports of multiple shots being fired, according to a report from The Argus.
Upon arrival, police found that a 25-year-old Newark man had sustained minor injuries after the shots were fired at his home, the report states.
Milner said that the man was treated at Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley.
