A man who turned himself in after fatally shooting a family member at a home in Fremont on Thursday evening has been released because the incident appears to be a case of self-defense, a police spokesman said today. The 27-year-old man, whose name was not immediately being released, is free pending further investigation, Fremont police spokesman Detective Bill Veteran said.
Police are meeting with Alameda County prosecutors this afternoon to discuss the case, Veteran said. Officers responded at about 5:25 p.m. Thursdauy to a report of a shooting in the 39500 block of Pardee Court and found a 48-year-old man dead from a gunshot wound to the torso, police said.
The 27-year-old left before officers arrived, but turned himself in to police about two hours later and also provided the gun allegedly used in the shooting, according to police. Veteran said other details about the case, including the 48-year-old’s name and his relationship to the shooter, were not yet being released today.
