Fresno police are investigating a gang-related shooting that happened early Friday outside a restaurant.
Lt. Joe Gomez said the department’s Shotspotter detection technology notified officers of gunfire in the 400 block of North Diana Street. They found a man nearby who had been shot in the calf. The injury was not serious.
The victim told officers that another man, who identified himself as a Crips gang member, shot him after an argument in front of the Me-Khong Restaurant.
The victim was out with his friends when he decided to walk to a nearby liquor store, Gomez said. The shooter began to yell at the victim, and some sort of fight ensued between the victim’s group and the suspect’s group.
Never miss a local story.
During the fight, the suspect retrieved a gun and fired several shots — one of which struck the victim. One shot hit a parked vehicle, and two hit an apartment on Diana. No other injuries were reported.
Gomez described the suspect as an Asian man wearing a black T-shirt with a large white design on the front.
