A man suffered a gunshot wound Sunday night in a central Fresno apartment, police said.
The shooting happened just after 7:30 p.m. near Mayfair Drive and Normal Avenue, just north of the major intersection of McKinley Avenue and First Street. That’s a few blocks north of where a drive-by shooting happened a week ago.
Lt. Carl McKnight said there have been four or five shootings in the neighborhood in the last 30 days.
He said not a lot of information is available, including leads about a suspect. The victim was not named, but McKnight said he’s a known gang member and parolee.

McKnight said investigators believe the shooting happened inside an apartment near the garage.
