Berkeley police said they fatally shot an auto burglary suspect Monday morning near Seventh and Grayson streets.

Few details were immediately available other than that the shooting took place around 5:26 a.m.

Police said that officers had gone to the scene of a reported auto burglary as it was happening. While police did not release any details as to how the shooting came to take place, or whether the three people officers confronted were armed, they did say that an officer or officers shot one person, and that that person “succumbed to their injuries.”

Police also did not immediately state how many officers fired their weapons, nor confirm the identities of the dead person or the two other people they said they arrested, other than that all three were adults.

The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, Alameda County Sheriff’s Office’s Coroner’s Bureau and Berkeley Police Department homicide division were investigating Monday.

On Friday, Berkeley police released some surveillance and body camera footage from its fatal police shooting in Albany in September.
