An 18-year-old man was shot by police in Huron Sunday night, according to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff’s spokesperson Tony Botti said police responded to a report of suspicious activity by three armed men.
An officer from the Huron Police Department fired the shot, hitting the suspect just before 10 p.m. at Lassen and Tornado avenues.
He was transported by helicopter to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno for treatment.
A 14-year-old boy was detained and a 16-year-old boy ran but deputies found him a short time later inside an apartment. All have ties to a street gang, the sheriff’s department said.
Investigators found two guns at the apartment complex and the events leading up to the shooting remain under investigation by the sheriff’s office, which is investigating at the request of Huron police, Botti said.
The suspect is in stable condition at Community Regional Medical Center and no officers were hurt.
