Homicide Investigation - December 4, 2018 on Chaucer Dr./Torrington Ct.

On Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at 11:18 p.m., Fremont patrol officers responded to an ascertain the problem call in the 34000 block of Torrington Ct. The caller stated they were outside when they heard gun shots and a vehicle collide into a fence. Information from additional 911 callers was that someone was injured.

Officers arrived and located a male critically injured, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, in the passenger seat of a vehicle that had crashed into the side of a house located at the corner of Chaucer Dr. and Torrington Ct.  A community member had begun to provide first aid and officers assisted until Fremont Fire Paramedics arrived.  Despite field trauma care, the male was pronounced deceased at 11:35 p.m. 

Witnesses reported a second male was seen running from the scene. At 11:50 p.m. a community member called with information which helped officers locate the male nearby.  The male was found to also be suffering from non-life threatening gunshot wounds.  Very preliminary information is that he was the driver of the vehicle at the time the car was shot at, and an associate of the deceased.  Due to his injury, he lost control of the vehicle and crashed before fleeing the scene on foot.  He was transported via ambulance to a hospital where he is being treated for his injuries.

Crimes Against Persons Detectives were called out and with patrol, have been working throughout the night to develop suspect leads and determine the motive in this homicide.  No arrest(s) have been made.
