Shooting in Fremont

By Matt Artz
Friday, December 26th, 2008 at 12:27 pm in cops, Crime, Fremont.

UPDATE (4:29 p.m.) The gunman was a fifty-something year-old white guy. I saw him get loaded into an ambulance. Don’t know if he was going to jail or a hospital. He fired a single round through his apartment wall shortly before noon. Cops came over, he wouldn’t come out. Cops evacuated people and negotiated with him. And then he surrendered. No one was hurt.

UPDATE (3:40 p.m.): The gunman has surrendered. Things are winding down at the scene.

UPDATE (1:38 p.m.): Turns out no one got shot, but the suspected gunman is holed up in his apartment and refusing to come out. It’s a standoff between him and police right now.

(ORIGINAL ENTRY): This one sounds more serious. It’s at the Glenhaven Savoy Apartments in North Fremont. I’ll be heading over there. Sounds like the shooter had a lot of guns registered to him, and police are now evacuating nearby apartments.

    The quiet and peaceful apartment complex Northgate Savoy has the police in full gear staking out this area. The guy apparently is in an apartment very close to ours and they evacuated a few people across the way that is a couple doors down from where this guy might be. The police are carrying large rifles and some have S.W.A.T. gear on. There was a police dog sniffing around also. We were told not to go near the door or the front area of our apartment. Hopefully we can get out soon so my sister can get to the airport….
