SAN LORENZO — Two women are dead and a person of interest is in custody following a shooting earlier this month at a home in San Lorenzo, according to authorities.

Deputies found the bodies while conducting a welfare check at a residence in the 15000 block of Dermody Avenue on May 4, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Friday. The victims were in their 30s and residents of the home.

The welfare check came after family members told authorities they had not heard from the women since April 30.

The women were killed on or around May 1 at the home, according to the sheriff’s office.

The sheriff’s office said it would not release any information related to the victims or the person of interest “until further notice.”

“Our investigators are actively and diligently working in close collaboration with the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office to bring justice to this egregious case,” the sheriff’s office said.

Anyone with information related to the case can contact Detective C. Galloway at 510-926-2386 or Detective R. Chevalier at 510-725-2976.
