One man was killed and a second was injured shortly before 9:30 p.m. Friday in a gang-related shooting at the Ranchwood Condos complex near Lane and Winery avenues in southeast Fresno, Lt. Mark Salazar of the Fresno Police Department said.
The murder victim, in his 60s, died from his injuries at Community Regional Medical Center. The second man, 30, was treated for a minor gunshot wound before being booked into the Fresno County Jail on a prior assault warrant, Salazar said. Police initially had said both victims were in their 30s.
The victims’ injuries were sustained during a gunfight between two groups of men, Salazar said. Detectives do not yet know if the murder victim knew the men who shot him, he said. A red Ford Mustang was seen leaving the complex after the altercation.
This victim’s homicide marks the city’s 13th slaying this year, Salazar said, noting that this time last year there had been 18 murders.
Anyone with information related to the homicide is asked to contact detective Leonard Cabrera at (559) 974-6665 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP.
