Northeast Fresno Shooting Under Investigation

Posted: Updated:

Fresno police are looking for who shot a man in a Northeast Fresno neighborhood Sunday morning.

The shooting took place around 10:30 AM on East Sierra Madre Avenue and North 1st Street.

Neighbor Jody Davis says she ran outside as soon as she heard the gunshots go off.

"Scared to death … too close to home," is how Davis describes her experience.

Davis says she caught a glimpse of the shooter as he ran toward a fence and jumped over it.

"I walked across the fence ... across the street to see if everybody was okay because I kept on hearing a lady say ... my son was shot," said Davis.

The victim was hit and was rushed to the hospital.

Police set up a perimeter around the neighborhood, and went door to door searching for leads.

But neighbors, like Davis, say the violence is becoming too common in the neighborhood.

Just two weeks ago, a man was shot a block over in the parking lot of the Fashion Fair mall.

"If I had a way I would be out of this area to a safer area," said Davis.

Police are working off several leads, but have not yet made any arrests.

As for the victim, his identity and condition have not yet been released.
