Deputies investigating shots fired from vehicle

Fresno County sheriff's deputies are investigating gunshots fired from a car at another car Wednesday afternoon in east-central Fresno.

Witnesses told deputies that a blue Chevrolet Camaro with two male occupants was stopped in traffic on the Clovis Avenue frontage road near Garland Avenue about 1:30 p.m., a sheriff's spokesman said.

The driver from a second vehicle fired several gunshots from a small handgun at the Camaro, deputies said. A passenger also was in the second car. Both vehicles then drove north on Clovis Avenue.

Deputies do not know whether anyone was hit by the gunfire.

Witnesses said the burgundy-colored car was a two-door 1990s model. Anyone with information is asked to call the Fresno County Sheriff's Department at (559) 488-3111 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-7867.
