Two injured in early morning Fremont shooting, four suspects at large

- Two people were injured in a shooting early this morning in Fremont and the four suspects are at large, police said.

According to Fremont police Sgt. Rob Alexander, at 2:43 a.m. police received a report of an interrupted auto burglary in the area of Summit Drive and Mello Way.

Kevin Sykes says he heard the alarm on his truck going off and rushed outside to see someone rummaging through it. That burglar took off running. But the victim says he then confronted three other people in a truck nearby. They reportedly looked like they were also involved in the burglary -- the engine was running and the door was open. 

"The guy in the back tried to get out and I sort of pinned his leg in, then yelled for my roommate to come out," said Sykes. "He took over holding the door where I was."

"I got halfway up my driveway and I heard a gunshot."

Sykes was running to his house to call the police when he heard the shot. He turned around to see his roommate lying in the street holding his stomach. Sykes was also shot and both were transported to a local hospital. 

Sykes was released but his roommate is remains under care. He is expected to survive. 

The four suspects in the case fled the scene and remain at large. They were described as two men and two women, all in their 20s and Hispanic, Alexander said.

Fremont police are on the scene investigating and actively searching for all four suspects, Alexander said. 

Fremont police officers received assistance from Union City police and Alameda County sheriff's deputies, Alexander said.

Further details were not immediately available.
