Clovis police seek info in fatal shooting

Clovis police are seeking information in the fatal shooting of a man early Sunday.

The man was found dead in the road on the 3000 block of Ezie Avenue around 3 a.m., police said.

The Fresno County Coroner's Office identified the man as Dewayne Young, 33. His hometown was unknown.

Young was shot repeatedly in the chest, police said.

Police said there was a birthday party for a 1-year-old at a home Saturday afternoon and evening. Officers believe a disturbance led to the shooting.

A woman and eight children were in the home at the time of the shooting, police said. All were unhurt.

Witnesses said they saw several vehicles leaving the area just after hearing gunshots.

Police do not have any suspects in the shooting.

Officers want to question family members who attended the party, though many have been uncooperative, a police spokeswoman said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Clovis police at (559) 324-2800.
