Police are investigating a shooting at the intersection of Echo and Weldon avenues across from Fresno High School in front of a popular ice cream shop.

Officers were alerted to gunshots around 7:30 p.m. Sunday by several calls and a ShotSpotter electronic alert, according to Lt. Jennifer Horsford.

They arrived to find a vehicle had crashed into a fire hydrant. Four people were inside.

Police believe the shots were fired at the vehicle, though it was not struck and no one was injured, Horsford said.

A second vehicle, a tan or gold Chevrolet Suburban or Tahoe, fled the scene, Horsford said.
