ShotSpotter led Fresno police to a crime scene Sunday evening, but the victim didn’t show up until later at a hospital.
Lt. Steve Card said police received an alert on ShotSpotter, the city’s shooting-alert system, at 5:12 p.m. for several rounds fired in the area of Amador and Thorne avenues in west Fresno.
Officers arrived at A&M Westside Market on the corner of Whitesbridge and Thorne avenues and discovered evidence of the shooting in the alley near the store along with a small blood trail – but no victim.
Later, a 22-year-old man showed up at Community Regional Medical Center with a bullet wound to the lower leg. He reportedly drove himself to the hospital.
