A 38-year-old Fresno man was rushed to the hospital Thursday morning after he was shot inside an apartment near Cedar and Olive avenues, police reported.
The shooting was called in at 10:43 a.m. across from Yosemite Middle School at Ninth Street and Floradora avenue. Lt. Joe Gomez said the victim reported that he was asleep and was confronted by two suspects, who fired on him. Some of the bullets went into an adjacent apartment.
The victim was rushed to Community Regional Medical Center, where he is currently in critical, but stable condition. The victim claimed he was a guest at the apartment and the two gunmen shot him for no apparent reason. Investigators are trying to get a more complete story from the victim.
After the shooting, the victim reportedly walked to another apartment before police arrived and then to a curb outside the complex, where he was treated by emergency workers and rushed to the hospital. The suspects ran north from the complex after the shooting and police are searching for them.
Yosemite Middle School was briefly locked down after the incident, but reopened about 10 minutes later. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP.
