A man is in critical condition after a shooting in central Fresno on Wednesday, Fresno police Lt. Joe Alvarez said.
Officers were patrolling in the area of Shields and Fruit avenues just before 7 p.m. when they heard shots fired, and a passerby flagged them down about a shooting victim.
Officers quickly formed a perimeter around the victim on the corner of Shields and Vagedes avenues.
Officers have a suspect detained while they search the area for the gun, Alvarez said. The victim was transported to Community Regional Medical Center and is in critical but stable condition.
