Earlier updates

Three people were killed in Fremont overnight when a gunman opened fire inside the Last Call Bar on West Sate Street.

"Two were pronounced dead at the scene," a news release from the Fremont Police Department states.

A third person died later at Fremont Memorial Hospital, and a fourth victim who was shot was flown to a Toledo Hospital.

There was a second shooting at about 3 a.m. in the area of the Night RIders Motorcycle Club in the 200 block of Allen Street, police said. Nobody was located after police went there, but a male later showed up at the Fremont Memorial Hospital suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

That man who was shot in the second incident refused to provide police information about what happened.  

The two incidents appear unrelated, police said, and they are still searching for the shooters involved.

A  person who contacted the Register said an off-duty Elmore police officer was among the dead. 

The woman told the Register she was at a restaurant when she heard about the shooting. 

"I was at Denny's eating when everybody started talking about this shooting," she said. "I drove by and there were 17 police cars, local, the sheriff and the state police there."

She said she was told a bouncer at the bar was killed, along with an off-duty Elmore police officer.

An Elmore police cruiser was among the many police cruisers she saw at the Last Call when she drove past the bar.  A body was still lying in a doorway, she said. 

The shooting at the Last Call occurred at about 1:30 a.m., police said, and the suspected gunman was described as a short male.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Fremont Police Department at 419-332-6464.

Detective Sgt Bliss and det. Captain Wolf are investigating.
