In today’s paper there is a short item about two Fremont police officers receiving the Medal of Valor from the governor this week for their efforts last November when they saved a 40-year-old woman from her burning apartment on Mowry Avenue. Here’s the picture of the officers with the governor. This did not appear in the paper. Officers John Anderson and Brian Shadle are persons three and four from left to right in this image.
If you happened to hear about the raid on a Union City home this morning you’re probably wondering what it’s all about. Well, Union City police, the ones who busted into the home on Galaxy Way about 6 a.m., told me that it was related to a homicide case in Hayward and then referred me to a different agency for more information. We’ve got a reporter at The Daily Review working on the details, but it appears that at least a half-dozen suspected gang members were arrested related to a killing in Hayward last month. Check The Review for information later. We should have the full story in our paper tomorrow.
