A candlelight vigil for two 19-year-olds killed in a car crash was possibly the target of a drive-by shooting Monday night, Fresno County sheriff’s officials say.
The shooting happened around 8:30 p.m. at Elkhorn and Walnut avenues near where the crash happened, Lt. Chris Torres said.

Torres said about 40 to 50 people were at the vigil for two 19-year-olds who were killed when they collided into an almond tree Sunday evening. Earlier Monday, the Fresno County Coroner’s Office identified them as Augustin Sanzon Flores and Marcos Gonzalez Silvestre, both of Riverdale.
No one was hit Monday night, but Torres said officers found shell casings about 100 yards from the vigil.
There are no suspects and there will be an investigation, Torres said.
