A Hayward Police Department spokesman said a campus sergeant and a patrolman died late last night after the shootings. According to a woman dispatcher at the university. Moreno had responded at 10:45 p.m. to a silent alarm at a campus field station. The alarm proved to be false. Moreno then, she told police, became involved in an argument with campus Sergeant Stanley Henney, 44. and patrolman Gary Hart, 24, over their alleged failure to provide him with backup protection. A shouting match ensued, said the dispatcher and Moreno shot Henney in the chest and head, and Hart in the head, she told investigators. The fatal shots, said police, were fired from a .38 caliber police revolver. The dispatcher was found hiding in a closet, unharmed.
