A fight between rival gang members escalated to gunfire Friday night in a central Fresno neighborhood, police said.
Fresno Police Lt. Joe Gomez said an unknown number of Asian men believed to be members of the Lao Crips Gang exchanged words, then blows, and finally gunfire with several Hispanic men believed to be Bulldog gang members.
Gomez said that as of 9 p.m., no injuries were reported.
Both gangs fled the area of East Tyler Avenue and North Fifth Street. The Lao suspects fled in a gray or green Acura Integra-like sedan, and the Bulldog suspects fled on foot. Police located multiple bullet casings up and down Tyler.
An investigation is ongoing.
