Blackstone Avenue reopening after overnight shootings

The portion of Blackstone Avenue shut down early Friday morning while Fresno police investigated several shootings was reopening about 8 a.m.

Northbound Blackstone was closed north of Shields Avenue. Investigators were walking the street, apparently searching for shell casings.

Two or three people were wounded in at least two separate incidents. One was near the intersection of Blackstone and Ashlan avenues; the other on Blackstone just south of Shaw Avenue.

Investigators are reviewing surveillance video trying to identify suspect vehicles.

Police Chief Jerry Dyer is expected to discuss what happened in a news conference later Friday morning.

This story will be updated.
