Staff at the EZ 8 Motel located a male and a female unconscious and not breathing in a room at the motel at 11:48 p.m. NPD Officers along with paramedics from the Alameda County Fire Department responded. The male and female were pronounced dead at the scene. The preliminary investigation indicates that it was either a murder-suicide or a tragic double suicide. The male was identified as a 24 year old male from Livermore. The female was identified as a 17 year old female from Pleasanton. The investigation will take several months pending the completion of the autopsy and laboratory results.

Dispatch received multiple 9-1-1 calls at 9:50 p.m. from the Pavilion in regards to a fight in progress involving approximately 12 gang members.

Officer Smith was flagged down in front of 35571 Newark Boulevard at 11:26 p.m. in regards to a family party that was getting out of control. This prompted another full response by officers who provided a civil standby until the party goers left the area and calm was restored.
A CHP Officer looking for stolen cars at the Motel 6 lot at 8:18 a.m., came upon a felony vehicle, which listed a wanted Parolee-At-Large (PAL), Eric Ontiveros DOB of Hayward. Ontiveros was listed as an armed and dangerous, high-level violent security risk. CHP requested NPD to take over the investigation/surveillance.
NPD set up surveillance of the vehicle and conducted investigation into Ontiveros' possible location. Officer Nobbe was able to determine that Ontiveros was possibly in a room with his girlfriend whom he is restrained from per a court order. Fearing that she was being held in the room against her will by Ontiveros, NPD established containment and conducted a surround and call-out. Contact was made with Ontiveros by sight and via the phone. Ontiveros stated that he would not come out and made that very clear. CHP called in additional officers, Fremont PD, Union City PD and their armored vehicles. Ontiveros eventually surrendered to SWAT. Outstanding job by all involved. Thank you to CHP, Fremont PD and Union PD for the help. It is much appreciated.
