    Police shot and killed an armed suspect near Washington Hospital in Fremont Thursday night.

    A Fremont Police Department officer was on his way back to the police station, driving southbound on Civic Center Drive when a man allegedly fired a gun at the patrol vehicle, according to Capt. Fred Bobbitt. The officer made a u-turn and used his rifle to fire back at the suspect.

    More police officers responded to the scene around 10:50 p.m. and 17 minutes later, the suspect was pronounced dead, police said.

    After the first officer fired at the suspect, the man was on the ground, waving his arms with a gun next to him, according to Bobbitt. Officers told the suspect not to move but the suspect "crawled and grabbed the firearm and pointed it at our officers," Bobbitt said.
