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.

Roughest bar in Fretroit for sure. Glad I live in Sandusky now where it's safe!


Fremont is no less safe than Sandusky. It's a situational thing. I would guess that, if you did a study to see which venue experienced more violence, any bar in any city at 1:30am is going to see more violence than, say, a community theatre, where I spent last evening.

Dr. Information

bar vs community theater on violence at 1:30am, and you say the community theater more than likely has a history of less violence.

Boy you sure are a true GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a freaking GEM.


Nobody ever gets shot at a theater, guaranteed.-Abraham Lincoln


Good One!

Dr. Information

coaster is about as brain dead as they get.

Simple Enough II

They say there were also reported gunshots down town, did the Mexicans tangle with that black bike (wannabees) gang down by Bidwell? They turned a small black church into their "clubhouse" and run it as an after-hours club I think theirvoatch is blue crickets or moon knights or something like that.


I don't know if it was a church prior, but it's in the old Fremont Wreckers boxing club.


Alcohol. Remind me again why pot is still illegal.


Because if it wasn’t, we’d have more brain dead stoners like yourself bringing down the average IQ.


So what is your IQ?


Sorry, I don’t believe in bragging on the internet. Just makes a person seem desperate.


thinkagain: You have th IQ of a dead person.


Judge not, lest ye be judged.


And yet, hypocrite that you are…you just judged me.

It’s OK though, you’re just another biblical illiterate butchering the true meaning of Matt 7:1-5.


Nice try. Do you know holysee to be a pothead? He doesn't need your approval for his comment, nor do I. I admit to being flawed, give it a try.

ladydye_5 one knows the bible like thinkagain...he is the ONLY one that can quote it. He is the only one that gets to cherry pick quotes to throw at people. Everyone else is illiterate. I have a feeling he would call GOD himself illiterate when it comes to knowing the bible.


“ one knows the bible like thinkagain...”

Thank you! It just goes to show you’ve been paying attention in class.


thinkagain is really fred phelps. the only thing that works him up more than weed is anything to do with gays.


What an intelligent comment. I guess we need to keep marijuana smokers in jail because prejudicial buffoons like yourself are "scared" of marijuana.... Get over yourself. Alcohol is much worse than marijuana and that is perfectly legal. And btw, people who want to smoke marijuana get their hands on it -- keeping it illegal hasn't kept people from smoking it. It's only put people in jail who should be free, but thanks to people like you, they're in prison because.... wait for it.... THEY SMOKED MARIJUANA!!!


Burnouts to the left of me, stoners to the right.

Thanks for all your doper inclinations and pothead pontifications.

Highlight of the day for a stoner…sitting around blowing smoke into their pets' faces while watching old Cheech and Chong movies.

Potheads, break the psychological addiction before your life goes up in smoke.


" keeping it illegal hasn't kept people from smoking it"

So those who smoke it are lawless and disrespect authority, great argument for its defense.


No place is safe. People are crazy. You never know who's going to go off next. I am seriously considering getting a gun and a CCW.


The first thing you need to learn is situational awareness. There are places and situations you just need to stay the he77 away from. A gun is just a tool. There is someone always strronger faster and a better shot under pressure than you. That is when you screwed up and failed to realise you needed to get the he77 away before it went there.


Take a CCW into a bar and you are a criminal anyways. Nobody is ALLOWED to have a gun in a liquor establishment. How did he get one in there if it's illegal.

Dr. Information

Completely false. Ohio passed a law that allows you to carry into any bar as long as you are not consuming.


I just googled it. We can NOW, take one drink though........

Dr. Information

So what is your point? Now is now!


My point is retard, I was wrong. You corrected me. I agreed with you. Stop being such a d-bag about it. I knew it used to be the law, we changed it, I didn't hear about the change until now. Please excuse my ignorance as I am obviously way too ignorant to engage in a conversation because I missed a change in our CCW must get your a$$ed kicked a lot.

ah, name calling. typical.
