SAN LEANDRO (KRON) -- The man found dead from a gunshot wound at a San Leandro elementary school last night has been identified as 18-year-old Trevon Foster, family members told KRON 4 Haaziq Madyun.
Hillside Elementary school is closed today as sheriff's deputies investigate the fatal shooting of Foster on the campus Wednesday night, a sheriff's sergeant said.
Deputies responded to a report of shots fired at Hillside Elementary School at 15980 Marcella St. at about 8:45 p.m., sheriff's Sgt. J.D. Nelson said.
When they arrived, they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound, Nelson said.
Foster was transported to Eden Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, he said.
Nelson said Hillside Elementary is shut down for the day as deputies search the grounds.
It is unknown what led to the shooting, but Nelson said investigators are looking into the possibility that it stemmed from a dice game.
This is the first homicide that the Alameda County Sheriff's Office has investigated this year.
