After 28-year-old Alameda County Sheriff’s deputy-in-training David Nguyen was fatally shot near the Bay Bridge Tuesday, that county’s sheriff’s association is now offering a $10,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest.
When we first learned this week that a San Francisco man who was in training to be an Alameda County Sheriff’s Deputy was shot and killed on the approach to the Bay Bridge in Oakland, we did not originally know his identity.
But we now know, through many online memorials, that it was 28-year-old David Nguyen, and that heartbreakingly, Nguyen was just one month away from graduating and being sworn on to the force.

At the time he was shot, he was on his way back to San Francisco from the sheriff’s department training facility in Dublin.
But police are still searching for clues on why Nguyen was shot on Tuesday, with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office telling KGO that Nguyen was shot for “no apparent reason.”
