Early morning shooting incident and related SWAT Team activity, resulted in an arrest today.

At 2:47 a.m., this morning, patrol officers responded to a shooting in the McDonald’s parking lot located at the intersection of Decoto Rd. and Fremont Blvd. Upon arrival officers located three victims in a vehicle. The victims told officers they had been in the drive-thru of the restaurant when they became involved in a verbal disagreement with the occupant of the car behind them.  The victim’s got their food and parked in the lot.  About five minutes later, the male occupant of the vehicle they were arguing with, returned in his vehicle.  The male then fired several rounds hitting the victim’s vehicle. Despite multiple rounds being fired into their vehicle, the three occupants were fortunately not injured.

The suspect was only described as either a Hispanic or Asian male and his vehicle had no plates.

Early this afternoon, the suspect vehicle was located in the Cabrillo neighborhood. At that time, an undercover operation to monitor the vehicle and associated residence took place. A full Fremont Police SWAT Team callout was initiated to safely apprehend the suspect, who was believed to be armed. At approximately 4:00 p.m., the suspect was seen exiting his residence and was taken into custody without incident.  The house has been secured and will be searched pending a search warrant.

This incident is being investigated as an attempt homicide. The suspect was transported back to the police department where he will be given the opportunity to speak with detectives.

This remains an active and ongoing investigation and we are unable to release any further details at this time. Anyone with information or who may have witnessed this incident, is asked to please contact Detective Butcher via email at or call 510-790-6900.  We will also accept anonymous tips via text.  Text “Tip FremontPD” followed by the message to 899-777.
