#sanleandro #news FYI : A San Leandro woman was accidentally struck by “celebratory gunfire” just after midnight New Year’s Day as she stood in her apartment complex in the 1200 block of Pacific Avenue.
First responders treated the woman for a minor injury in her lower extremity. Investigators determined the bullet was from a promiscuous gunshot in celebration of the new year and not intended to cause injury.
The San Leandro Police Department received six calls for service from the public reporting promiscuous gunfire on NYE. Shooting a gun into the air in any circumstance is illegal and may be considered a felony under the California Penal Code.
