Several people are injured for at least three people were shot and two were critically injured early Sunday morning during a shootout between would-be-thieves and a marijuana grower at a San Leandro warehouse, officials said

San Leandro police said at about 4:20 a.m., they responded to a call regarding a burglary in progress in the 2000 block of Adams Avenue.

When officers arrived on scene, they learned of a shootout between burglary suspects and people tending to the indoor marijuana cultivation.
