Earlier this month, the Hayward Police Department released new information from investigative leads in a 2016 murder.

On Aug. 6, 2016 around 7:30 p.m. a 17-year-old male was shot and killed on Muir Street, just down the street from the Cal State East Bay’s Hayward campus. HPD never released the victim’s name because he was a minor, however, neighbors and friends confirmed to The Pioneer that the teen was Justo Cea. Cea was leaving a house party in the area near Muir Street and Culp Avenue when he was shot and killed.

HPD announced on Feb. 10 that new investigative leads resulted in sketches of two suspects and a description of the vehicle they fled in. HPD Sgt. Ryan Cantrell said the sketches and vehicle information were obtained by HPD detectives following up on leads, but could not elaborate further due to the sensitivity of the case.

According to HPD, the first suspect is a black adult male in his early 20’s, between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall with a “heavy build.” The second suspect was described as a Hispanic adult male in his early to mid 20’s, between 5 feet 2 inches and 5 feet 4 inches tall and also with a “heavy build.”

According Cantrell, an early 2000’s model white, four-door Isuzu Axiom SUV was seen fleeing the scene immediately after the shooting.
