Police are searching for suspects following a shooting inside a home in Fremont's Niles District that left a woman and a 2-week-old baby injured.
The shooting was reported at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday on the 37500 block of Mission Boulevard. Police said they received a call from a person saying multiple suspects came to their home and fired shots. The suspects then fled, possibly in a vehicle, according to police.
Police said the woman's injury does not appear to be life threatening. She suffered the injury from a graze wound to her lower body, according to police. The woman's infant was dropped during the incident and is being hospitalized as a precautionary measure, police said.
The father said his 7-year-old was also there.
“I didn’t think anyone was going to start shooting at me,” said Adam. “Today was a normal day.” The father said the suspects were after him.
“They’re known,” he said. “They came and were acting like they were there for one reason – they were there to kill me. We exchanged fire.”
Adam said he legally owns a handgun and is well trained. He said the men came to his door over a family-type dispute but they’renot blood relatives.
He said he jumped out of the window and the men escaped.
“That was it,” he said. “Thank God for the Second Amendment because without me being armed I wouldn’t be here.”
Adam said the suspects were not after his wife and that they moved her out of the way.
“It wasn’t about her, it was about me,” he said.
Police continue looking for the suspects saying this was a targeted shooting.
