Third person is in custody

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -  

Two people are dead and a third person is in custody after separate officer-involved shootings in Union City and nearby Hayward.
 
The shootings -- the third and four fatal shootings in the San Francisco Bay area involving police and suspects over the weekend -- came after Union City police say a suspect pulled a gun on officers during a traffic stop Saturday night and after Hayward police say a suspect tried to run down an officer during a traffic stop early Sunday.
 
In the Union City shooting, police say the driver of a car ran from police after stopping his car and then pulled a handgun from his waistband.
 
In the Hayward shooting, police say an officer opened fire -- killing a passenger in a car -- when the driver maneuvered his car and tried to run over the officer.
