Fresno police say two men were shot and killed within an hour of each other in southeast Fresno early Sunday morning, and now they are trying to figure out if the shootings were related.
Manuel Lopez, 22, was shot once in the area of Backer and White avenues at 12:46 a.m., police said. He was taken to Community Regional Medical Center where he died.
A shot spotter call led police to a second victim at 1:38 a.m. at Willow Avenue and Inyo Street. Paul Cerrato, 40, was shot multiple times and died at Community Regional Medical Center from his injuries.
Police are asking anyone with information about either shooting to call Crime Stoppers at 559-498-7867.
