Here is some of the police dispatch audio from the shooting.

"As of right now, there was one shooter. So, we don't know any other confirmed intel on a second."

"Copy that."

"Fremont PD is working on a possible active shooter at Washington hospital."

"Is our scene Code 4, we only have one shooter and he's down?"

"He only shot one shooter."

"So confirm, no one outstanding? No suspects outstanding?"

"Confirm. No one outstanding."

"Suspect has stopped moving, but the firearm is under his right arm, underneath his body. So we are going to have to hold here for a few minutes."

"Have them secure the lobby on the west side for Washington west. We got people directly in the line of fire behind the glass."

"Per Ramirez, he says there was a white SUV that he says may been associated or that was being shot-at. Just FYI"
