Fresno’s first homicide of the year

What appears to be a gang-related shooting, leaves one person dead and another in serious condition.

This all happened in Southwest Fresno on the corner of Elm and Jensen near a Valero gas station.

Fresno police say their call center received more than half a dozen calls reporting gun fire last night. The calls started to come in around 11:30 p.m., just a few minutes before the new year.

Officers that responded to the scene found two men in their mid-twenties that were shot. They were both taken to Community Regional Hospital where one of them was pronounced dead and the other was taken into surgery.

Police on scene say there were several rounds fired between at least two groups. Anyone who has information is being asked to call Crime Stoppers at 498-STOP.

As far as the homicide count goes for 2014, the year closed at around 48 homicides, an increase from last years 40.
