HAYWARD, Calif. (KRON) — A teen was arrested in connection to a shooting near a high school in Hayward Friday morning, authorities said.

Around 9 a.m., Hayward police officers responded to the 27000 block of Coronado Street regarding a report of a shooting.

A witness said they saw what appeared to be a high school-aged student shoot at a moving car before fleeing the area on foot, possibly toward Mt. Eden High School.
