At least three people were shot and two were critically injured following a shootout at an indoor marijuana site in San Leandro early Sunday morning, officials said.

San Leandro police said at about 4:20 a.m., they responded to a call regarding a burglary in progress in the 2000 block of Adams Avenue.

When officers arrived on scene, they learned of a shootout between burglary suspects and people tending to the indoor marijuana cultivation.

According to police, a security guard for the site was shot and is listed in stable condition. While a site manager was shot multiple times and is listed in critical condition.

One burglary suspect was also shot and listed in critical condition, police said.



Officers spotted a U-Haul van fleeing the scene refusing to yield to police. A chase into Oakland ensued, during which the driver exited the van to enter a newer model silver Jeep. While switching vehicles, another suspect was caught by police. The van was recovered and collected as evidence.

Officers pursued the Jeep for several more minutes until it stopped and two suspects fled on foot. A 20-minute foot chase ended near 31st St. and Martin Luther King Way, with the suspects getting away.
