Parlier police are searching for the gunman responsible for shooting three men Sunday night at Veterans Park. One victim is the 18-year-old son of City Council member Yolanda Padilla.
Chief David Cerda said the shooting occurred about 10:15 p.m. in the 600 block of Sixth Street. Officers found the victims on the bleachers at the park. The three were exercising in the area when they were approached by several people in a car. Someone opened fire with what looked like a rifle.
The three were taken to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno, with one traveling by air. Their condition is stable and non-life threatening. Cerda said Padilla’s son is a Parlier High School student, as is another 18-year-old victim.
It did not seem to be a gang-related shooting.
