A man was wounded in a shooting Friday afternoon at a Parkway Drive motel west of Highway 99, Fresno police said.
Lt. Stephen Viveros said the shooting happened around 4:45 p.m. at the Sierra Inn, across Highway 99 from Roeding Park.
Viveros said the assailant arrived at the motel and went straight to the victim’s room. The 51-year-old victim told police he heard a knock on the door and immediately closed it after he saw the man.
After he closed the door, the man fired a bullet through the door and injured the victim. Officials said the assailant then fled and was last seen south of Parkway Drive.
