I believe the Sheriff's Office is investigating this shooting.

If it's in Castro Valley it's covered by the CHP, as stated. Alisha the Bay Area is a wonderful place to live, yes there is crime here, but please name a city that doesn't have crime going on. I'm sure living a sheltered life, people wouldn't know what's outside there front door.

The Sheriff's Office handles criminal matters in unincorporated Alameda county, such as shootings. The CHP handles traffic matters. So the article is slightly inaccurate.
