Large disturbance in central Fresno results in shots fired, stabbing

Shots were fired and a male was slashed with a knife Saturday night during a fight that broke out involving multiple people.

It happened near the intersection of Glenn and Belmont avenues in central Fresno.

Fresno police said at least one shot — and possibly as many as eight — were fired during an altercation between two large parties. The number of people involved was not immediately known.

Police said it was not immediately clear why the altercation started or whether it was-gang related.

Police shouted over a bullhorn for people who might’ve been involved in the disturbance to come out of a home.

Police were searching for the suspect in the knife attack.

The male victim received a “superficial” cut on his neck and was not transported to a hospital, police said.
