A 23-year-old man is in critical condition after he was shot multiple times in the parking lot of an east-central Fresno apartment complex early Monday morning, Fresno police said.
Officers were called to the 4800 block of East Vassar Avenue just before 2 a.m. for a shooting victim. When they arrived, police found the man, who is an admitted gang member, inside an apartment with multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body.
