5 suspects arrested by patrol officers for robbery late Thursday night after shooting incident in front of Target.

5 suspects were arrested late Thursday night after leading officers on a short pursuit after committing a robbery where shots were fired in front of the Target Store at the Fremont Hub.
Thursday night at 11:38 p.m. the Fremont Police Dispatch Center began receiving multiple calls of shots fired/heard at the Target Store located at the Fremont Hub.   Patrol Officers immediately responded.

Additional information was learned that multiple suspects had gotten into an altercation with security guards in front of the store after being confronted about stealing items, including video games.  Their associates drove up in a getaway car and one of the suspects fired multiple rounds into the air.  The suspects got into the car and it fled. 

A witness provided the direction of flight and a patrol officer located the suspect car near Mowry Ave and Glenview Dr.  The driver failed to yield and a pursuit was initiated.  The pursuit lasted approximately three minutes and ended in the area of Central Ave and Cedar Blvd. in Newark.  One suspect fled the car on foot.  Officers quickly took that individual into custody, along with four additional occupants in the vehicle.  A loaded firearm and the loss from the store were recovered in the car.  

There were no reported injuries.

Officers collected several shell casings from the parking lot area, interviewed witnesses and victims before clearing the scene. This remains a very active investigation and the information is very preliminary.  Some of the suspects are still in the process of being interviewed.  At least one suspect is a juvenile (17) and the others are adults in their late teens (18-19).  Further information will be made available as the investigation progresses.
