HAYWARD- A traffic stop on northbound Interstate 880 erupted in gunfire Saturday afternoon, leaving the suspect dead and sending one Hayward police officer to the hospital with a serious abdominal injury, Hayward Police Lt. Reid Lindblom said.

The incident happened at 3:15 p.m. about halfway between the Industrial Boulevard and Tennyson Road exits. More than a dozen police cars raced to the scene, and both directions of the highway were closed, clogging the highway for miles and forcing frustrated drivers to navigate crowded neighborhood streets.
