One person is dead and three others were rushed to the hospital after a shooting that occurred about 1 p.m. on Good Friday in northeast Fresno.
The gunfire broke out when one of two men on foot opened fire on a car southbound on North First Street, just south of Gettysburg Avenue. The gunfire caused the car to slam into a tree in the median of First Street, where the 19-year-old driver died. It was not known if he was killed by gunfire or the impact. The other victims apparently were not hit by bullets.
The driver was identified by the coroner's office Saturday as Eugenio Ybarra of Fresno.
Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said officers responded to the scene after receiving reports of multiple gunshots in the area.
Never miss a local story.
The chief said his officers learned that the deadly incident apparently occurred after an altercation at a nearby pizza parlor involving the four male occupants of the car and the two other men, who appeared to be in their early 20s. One of the men on foot was armed with the handgun.
The mother, father and siblings rushed to the scene, where Dyer said officers were given the grim task of telling them that he had been killed. The mother broke into tears as officers attempted to console her and the other family members.
Police were interviewing neighbors and reviewing nearby video cameras in an effort to identify the two involved in the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP.
