Fremont SWAT surround apartment building

UPDATE: 3:45 p.m. Man is 40 and was ARRESTED on suspicion of two charges, brandishing a weapon and making terrorist threats. NOTE: In this context, “making terrorist threats” only means that the guy threatened to harm someone. It DOES NOT mean the alternative definition of “terrorist threats” as we’ve come to know in the last decade or so … 

 

UPDATE: 3:25 p.m.: New story has been posted. There will be a final version posted later.

UPDATE: 3:05 p.m.: Confirmed, the man has surrendered.

UPDATE: 3 p.m.: The man apparently has just surrendered to authorities. More to come … 

UPDATE: 2:44 p.m.: The man is still in his apartment, and the building in question apparently has been evacuated, although this is unconfirmed at this point.

FREMONT — The Fremont police SWAT team has surrounded an apartment building on Guardino Way between Stevenson Boulevard and Walnut Avenue today after a resident of the complex was seen threatening people with a gun, authorities said.

No one has been hurt, police said. However, the gunman apparently brandished a weapon while arguing with two people who were working on the roof at the complex, Fremont police Detective Bill Veteran said.

Officers were called to the building about 11:15 a.m. and have been on scene for almost an hour and a half.

The suspect, whose name has not been released, apparently has barricaded himself inside an apartment and covered a window with a blanket, police said.

    I read that they have put the School for the Deaf and the Blind under lockdown. I live in this apartment building, about the buildings over from the one SWAT has surrounded and nothing has been said to the residents to keep them safe.
