Guard critically wounded in San Leandro armored truck robbery

SAN LEANDRO — An armored truck guard was shot during a robbery Wednesday morning at Kaiser Hospital, authorities said.

The guard, who works for Gardaworld, was in critical condition, authorities said.

The shooting and robbery happened about 11:40 a.m. Wednesday on the grounds of the hospital, which is at 2500 Merced Street.

Lt. Matt Barajas said the guard had just made a pickup of money and was on his way back to the truck when he was confronted by at least one suspect and was robbed and shot. The suspect then fled.

Police are still trying to determine how much money was taken.

The wounded guard was initially treated at Kaiser but was later transferred to another hospital.
