Details Emerge In Fremont Fatal Home Invasion; Roommate Arrested In Separate Shooting

FREMONT (CBS SF) – Fremont Police released additional details following a fatal shooting during an attempted home invasion at an apartment complex late Wednesday night.

Police said Friday that a group of armed suspects forced entry into a unit at the Mosaic Apartments on Fremont Boulevard around 10:25 p.m. One of the residents opened fire at one of the suspects, who later died. Detectives believe that at least one of the suspects also opened fire at the resident.

Detectives are trying to identify the other home invasion suspects.

The department's Major Crimes Task Force said another resident of the apartment unit was already being investigated for a separate shooting that took place on January 24 near Grimmer Blvd. and Blacow Road. In that shooting, police said a person in a car fired a handgun at or near a pedestrian.

Detectives said the victim did not report the shooting, but evidence, including surveillance video of the shooting was found. A suspect was identified last month and surveillance was being conducted on the apartment unit, where Wednesday's incident took place.

Following Wednesday's shooting, detectives gathered evidence to arrest 23-year-old Brian Robles in connection to the January shooting. Police said Robles was not the person who shot at the home invasion suspects.

Robles was booked into Santa Rita Jail in Dublin and has posted bail. His next court appearance is scheduled for May 13.

Detectives are investigating if both shootings are connected.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact either the department's Investigations Unit at 510-790-6900 or the Major Crimes Task Force at 510-790-6660.
