Suspect kills himself after shooting an officer during a traffic stop

Today at 1:33 pm, a Fremont police patrol officer attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the area of
Fremont Boulevard and Washington Boulevard. The driver of the vehicle backed into the officers patrol
vehicle and shots were fired. The officer was injured and the suspect(s) fled on foot.
Fremont officers encountered the suspect(s) for a second time on the 1300 block of Roberts Avenue at
1:43 pm. During the encounter multiple shots were fired again and a second Fremont officer was
injured. Both officers have been transported to trauma centers. We are not providing information on
the officers injuries or their condition at this time.
We believe that we have at least one primary suspect outstanding and possibly more. We have limited
information that the main suspect is a Hispanic male adult, approximately 6' tall wearing a Giants shirt
and shorts. We cannot confirm if he is injured.
We would like to thank all of the law enforcement agencies who are in Fremont assisting with this
More information will be provided as it is available.
