The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said late Sunday that it was responding to numerous reports of looting along the Interstate 880 corridor from Oakland down to Fremont.
Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ray Kelly said deputies and local police departments had responded to incidents at several major shopping centers, including San Leandro’s Marina Square and Bayfair Mall, Hayward’s Southland Mall, Union City’s Union Landing and other locations.
Kelly said deputies reported that suspects at Bay Fair opened fire on them as looting continued.
Separately, the Alameda County Fire Department battled a major fire that broke out before midnight at a Walmart on Davis Street after reports of looting. The fire was brought under control around 1 a.m.
“I can’t even tell you how overwhelmed they are right now,” Kelly said about emergency responders throughout central Alameda County. “It’s going on all over. We’re trying to intervene to slow it down, but the pace is so rapid it’s almost to the point where we’re irrelevant in responding.’

Santa Rosa —
Earlier in the evening in Santa Rosa, a group of 300 to 350 protesters grew in numbers at downtown's Courthouse Square and moved west to a freeway offramp, blocked by a line of police. After a 45-minute standoff with no altercations, people moved back toward downtown.
