A man who died a week after he was shot in the head last month at a southwest Fresno gas station has been identified.
The Fresno County Sheriff-Coroner's office identified the man as Cesar Duarte, 30, of Fresno. He died at Community Regional Medical Center Dec. 2.
Duarte was one of two men shot just after midnight on Nov. 25 at a gasoline station and convenience store at Fresno and B streets, a police spokesman said.
Fresno police officers learned of the shooting when they were sent to the hospital, where the victims were taken by other occupants of the car they were riding in.

Duarte was shot in the head and a 24-year-old man was hit in the upper body. His condition was not available Thursday.
The victims told officers there were four people in their 2001 BMW when they left a nearby home and headed to the gas station to put air in the car's tires. The driver was southbound on B Street, turning into the lot from eastbound Fresno, when gunfire erupted.
Police believe the station's parking lot was full of people and that someone from either a brown or a white vehicle opened fire on the victims' car.
Several drivers fled. One crashed into a funeral home south of the gasoline station.
