If you go walking at Lake Elizabeth today, don’t be alarmed if you see a dive team from the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office in the water. The group is not searching for a dead body or anything like that. They’re actually searching for a gun that someone reportedly threw in the lake last night.
Here’s the skinny: Someone threatened to commit suicide last night and a roommate of that person took the gun away, drove to Lake Elizabeth and threw it in the water.
Upon hearing this, Fremont police called the county dive team and told them they could use this opportunity as a training exercise. The county agency agreed, and apparently headed out there this morning.
