An incident involving a man who was barricaded in his Warm Springs District apartment since Friday morning has been resolved, according to a Fremont Police Department spokesperson.

When the man was finally contacted by police officers Friday afternoon, there was a brief struggle and police said he had an emergency medical issue. He received emergency treatment at the scene by the Fremont Fire Department. 

The man was then transported to a local hospital for treatment. All potential fire hazards at the location were addressed by firefighters.

Firefighters received a call of a fire at the apartment, in the 46000 block of Winema Common, near Mohave Drive and Mission Boulevard and directly adjacent to the Franciscan Shopping Center. 

Fire crews arrived at 9:06 a.m. The person who reported the fire said someone may be inside the unit, according to Fremont police spokesperson Lt. Ricardo Cortes. Police and firefighters investigated, and the man inside the unit told them to leave because he had a gun. 

Officers evacuated nearby residents, according to police. Negotiators were in communication with the suspect and even brought him food he asked for. 

But, he remained inside the apartment unit most of Friday afternoon.

The fire was limited and was contained, Cortes said.
