HAYWARD -- Police have identified a man who was shot to death inside a camper over the weekend as 28-year-old Pablo Torres-Llamas.

Torres-Llamas was discovered early Saturday morning inside the camper where he lived on Princeton Street near Sunset Boulevard in unincorporated Hayward, Alameda County Sheriff's Office Sgt. J.D. Nelson said Monday.

Police have released little information about Torres-Llamas, but did say he worked odd jobs including being a dishwasher at a local restaurant.

Deputies responded just after midnight to reports of multiple gunshots in the area near the camper, Nelson said. While scanning the neighborhood deputies discovered Torres-Llamas suffering from at least one gunshot wound in a trailer parked in the backyard of a home.

Torres-Llamas was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators are following leads provided by witnesses, but have not yet identified any suspects or a motive, Nelson said Monday.

The shooting marks the second homicide of the year in unincorporated Alameda County, following the Feb. 13 slaying of 19-year-old Trevion Foster in Ashland.

Foster, a former football player at McClymonds High School in Oakland, was shot to death at a San Leandro elementary school campus. Witnesses reported hearing shots around 8:45 p.m. at Hillside Elementary School, 15980 Marcella St, police said. Deputies found Foster, suffering from at least one gunshot wound, in a grassy area in the back area of the campus.

As of Monday there were no named suspects and no one is in custody, Nelson said. Investigators are checking the possibility that the shooting came during a dice game.

Anyone with information on either homicide is asked to call the sheriff's office at 510-667-3602 or the anonymous tip line at 510-667-3622.
