A gunman killed by Fresno officers after a standoff early Wednesday fired at least 95 rounds before he was shot to death, police said Friday.
Salvadro Alfredo Pablo Lopez, 21, who police said was a Bulldog gang member, fired five firearms starting about 3:30 a.m. in a neighborhood on West Dakota Avenue. The weapons were:
▪ A 5.45 x 39 mm assault rifle, from which 14 rounds were fired.
▪ A 9 mm handgun, 59 rounds.
▪ A .40 caliber handgun, 40 rounds.
▪ A .45 caliber handgun, 13 rounds.
▪ A 12-gauge shotgun, eight rounds.
It was earlier reported by police that the assault rifle fired .30 caliber ammunition.
Police Lt. Mark Hudson said Friday that officers rescued a family of five children and four adults from a house at the standoff scene. A sergeant took time to aid a family dog that was fleeing the gunfire. Another family pet was shot by Lopez and died in surgery.
Police reported that Lopez was hiding in and near a shed behind the house. Thirty-five bullets hit the west side of the house, a carport, two cars and a nearby heating unit. Five rounds penetrated the exterior of the house.
There were 17 bullet holes in the roof of the shed, another eight in the walls, and 44 in the shed door, all fired by Lopez while he was in the structure, police reported. The bullets were fired in the direction of the yard, the street and the general direction of officers.
Investigators found an additional 67 live rounds at the crime scene: 31 9 mm, 20 .45 caliber, 10 5.45x39 mm and six .40 caliber.
