A 51-year-old woman who was shot and mortally wounded early Saturday morning inside her southeast Fresno home has been identified as Josefina Alvarez, the Fresno County Sheriff-Coroner’s Office said.
Police Lt. Mark Salazar said the woman was in her home in the 1500 block of South Fifth Street Saturday when someone outside apparently fired into the home. Other family members were home at the time but none were injured, Salazar said.
Alvarez was taken to Community Regional Medical Center, where she died from her injuries.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call detective Alfonso Castillo at (559) 621-2449.
