A shooting late Wednesday night near Fresno's Manchester shopping center is being investigated by police. Lt. Joe Gomez said officers went to the 3700 block of North Abby Street at 10:21 p.m. to check reports that five gunshots had been fired. They encountered two brothers, 32 and 38, who live in the area.
They said the 38-year-old was riding his bicycle when he was attacked by four men. The 32-year-old said he ran to defend his brother. As he was fighting with one of the attackers, he said another suspect pulled a gun and fired two shots at him. He said he ran back to his apartment and three more rounds were fired at him, striking the side of his apartment complex.
The suspects reportedly fled, with the only injury being to the 38-year-old, who sustained a bloody mouth.
