Deputies were conducting a traffic stop just after 10 p.m. on Castro Valley Boulevard when they were notified of a robbery in progress at the Boulevard Burger, located at 3714 Castro Valley Blvd., Sgt. J.D. Nelson said.
Nelson said the deputies went into the restaurant and saw a suspect, wearing gloves and a mask, holding a .357 revolver.
The suspect turned to face the deputies and an employee at the restaurant grabbed the suspect’s arm causing the revolver to fire one round, according to Nelson.
A deputy opened fire at the suspect, striking and killing him, Nelson said.
