"I couldn't see what he was aiming at," said Albert Ybarra, a resident of the 7500 block of Frederiksen Lane, where on Friday morning police shot and wounded a 28-year-old man they said was wielding a large "Rambo-style" knife. "It was something on the other side of (the suspect's father's) truck."
He then heard three shots. The suspect's father was behind the truck during the shooting.

Ybarra said this is not the first time the suspect, who was identified by Bay Area media outlets as Ryan Cox, has been in the street with a knife. Ybarra said he called police on another occasion for that reason.
From Bay City News:
A Dublin police officer shot a suspect Friday morning around 9:30 a.m. on a residential street in the 7500 block of Frederiksen Lane, according to the Alameda County Sheriff's Office.
The suspect, a 28-year-old man, was apparently alive and talking after the shooting, and the officer was uninjured, Sgt. J.D. Nelson said. The suspect, who was shot in the arm, was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.
There is a school nearby, Frederiksen Elementary on Tamarack Drive, but Nelson said the shooting did not involve the school in any way.
Patch will update this story as we get more information.
Editor's Note: Frederiksen Lane and Frederiksen Lane Court were blocked off most of the day during the investigation.
The last officer involved shooting in Dublin was in April 2011, when a police officer shot and killed a transient who attacked and beat her.
