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.

Three people from the Register are working on the story. We'll keep updating today as more information becomes available. Check back here. 


Thanks, we'll be sure to jeep our eyes on this site.


Jeeps are cool, but I think I'll SUV my eyes instead.


Cherokees are SUV's

Simple Enough II

Hmmmm, I now know what woke me up, not the gunshots but the sirens.


Lol so many critics it laughable


*it's......Sorry, I had to!


When we find violence in our own backyard, it's how can this happen?
The spiritual emptiness of our society today continues to manifest in these stupid acts of violence because some people choose to be violent.
Prayers to all involved because so-called random acts of violence are not random, they are deliberate.

Baby momma, you're an idiot with nothing more than middle school education. Get off welfare, get a job, and find something else to do with your time besides making stupid comments showing how uneducated you are.


Thanks I'll keep that in mind pudwacker.


This is terrible now three more died at the hands of a person with total disregard for human life. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families . One can only hope that justice will be able to prevail and the ones responsible are arrested and taken off the streets .

Dr. Information

Someone touched on this awhile back and I agree. Our society needs Jesus now more than ever before. Instead of bellying up at a bar drinking your life away each weekend, how about surrounding yourself with positive people.

We keep hearing and seeing the same people in the paper each week and these losers wonder why? Is it just bad luck? Not at all. They continue to live the loser life and surround themselves with losers and its a cycle of everyone trying to bring each other down. We need people to be lifted up, but that is up to them. I have a great church in Norwalk if anyone is interested.


I can be a good person, know right from wrong, and NOT kill/hurt people without Jesus or a church.


I knew this was going to happen once those idiots started drinking.
Guns are good for a self-regulating alcoholic population.


Either way you slice this, and piss in the wind about it. It's scary as hell.

The problem is this : The criminals Don't obey the laws , read the signs or give a flyin' F.

If a lowlife is hell bent on killing someone what's to stop them? Sounds drug -related.

I really hope a cop being shot rumor isn't true.

Channel 13 is not reporting anything new at this posting.


It is not a rumor.


That sucks.


The cop was a cousin to a friend of mine. Just a series of tragic events in Fremont. Prayers to all the families affected by such senseless violence.


Agreed. The 3 were killed were all related to my friends from school. Very sad.

Stop It

this aside, to Mr. colvin, your pricing is discriminating against single people and should not be allowed. WHY SHOULD ONE PERSON PAY MORE BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT MARRIED. Change your prices to reflect that! to anyone who is thinking of taking the class, refuse to pay the higher amount.


Oh shut the hell up, damn crybaby


What makes you so angry that you have to verbally abuse others about whom you know nothing? I have a legitimate point. Descrimination comes in many forms.


It's not discrimination, it's a price break for two people to promote sales. Go with a friend and you will receive the same price.


Why should I have to pay a different price regardless of what it is called? Single people are being charged more for the same event and that is wrong. The obvious point is that the event planners lose money by not charging the same price, so how is that finacially smart?


Have you ever seen a sale such as buy one get the second for half price? It's the same idea.


No you do not have a legitimate point. It is a private business using a "SALE" to entice more people to sign up. No different than using a coupon. Same as offering a military or senior discount. Although I am sure you would complain about that too.
