Suspect faces multiple attempted murder charges
Submitted By Geneva Bosques, Fremont PD
A 27-year-old Fremont man is in custody and charged with three counts of attempted murder stemming from a shooting incident in a north Fremont shopping center on Friday, March 30.
The incident started at 2:47 a.m. when patrol officers were dispatched to a reported shooting near a McDonaldÕs restaurant in a shopping center on the 3900 Block of Decoto Road. Officers found three people who were reportedly targets of the shooter, but they were not injured. The victims told officers the incident started as a verbal argument with the suspect in the restaurant drive-through lane. The suspect drove up to the victimÕs vehicle and fired 12 rounds striking the vehicle in multiple locations. After the shooting, the suspect fled the area at a high rate of speed.
Detectives from the Fremont Police DepartmentÕs Investigations Unit, Street Crimes Unit, Special Investigations Unit, and patrol officers quickly coordinated efforts to locate the suspect vehicle and driver. Using video surveillance from nearby businesses and automated license plate readers on the street, police got a description of the vehicle. Eventually, police found the vehicle in the 35000 block of Magellan Drive and began a surveillance.
At 1:10 p.m. officers saw a man that matched the description provided by the victims walk toward the vehicle, and they stopped him. He was positively identified and arrested by members of the Fremont Police DepartmentÕs SWAT Team. Police identified the suspect as Allan Shu, 27, of Fremont.
A search warrant was served at HsuÕs residence and various items of evidentiary value were seized, including several firearms and ammunition. Additional physical evidence tied Hsu to the shooting. Hsu was booked into Fremont Jail on suspicion of attempted murder.
On Monday, April 2, the case was submitted to the Alameda County District Attorney for review and charging. Investigation into the case is ongoing.
