    Fremont police officers fatally shot a man, and one officer was hospitalized Sunday evening while responding to a "disturbance," according to the Fremont Police Department.

    Police responded about 5:30 p.m. to reports of a disturbance at Mowry Avenue between Glenview and Logan drives and warned people to avoid the area, police said. They arrived and made contact with a man in an area described as a business district and ultimately shot and killed him, police said.

    Details were sketchy, but police said an officer was transported to a hospital with unspecified injuries that were not life-threatening. He was treated and later released, police said.

    Mowry Avenue was shut down and would be closed through the night while the shooting was investigated, police said. They added that there was no danger to the public and no outstanding suspects.

    Neighbors were surprised to learn what occurred while they were watching the Super Bowl.

    "I got home from Super Bowl, and yes Mowry is a busy street, and we see some traffic incidents, but nothing like this," resident Karla Lunde said.

    Police did not release the name of the man who was killed or the officer who shot him.
