Detectives with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office are asking for the public’s help to identify shooting suspects and their getaway car.

The unknown suspects, believed to be four men and one woman, are wanted for attempted murder in the shooting of a 22-year-old woman Nov. 4 in northwest Fresno, said sheriff’s office spokesman Tony Botti.

The shooting happened in a cul-de-sac on Nantucket Avenue, just north of Roberts Avenue – west of Maroa Avenue and south of Bullard Avenue.

Botti said cameras along Fresno streets captured the suspects’ vehicle – possibly a black, four-door, 2010 C-Class Mercedes-Benz with tinted windows – driving through the intersection of Shaw and Blackstone avenues just after the shooting around 11 p.m.

The victim was shot multiple times while in a Nissan Sentra with her boyfriend, who was not injured. The woman, who was not named, has since been released from the hospital and is recovering from her injures.

“Deputies interviewed neighbors and the victims, but were unable to get an answer as to why their car was targeted,” Botti said.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 559-600-3111, detective Gary Haslam at 559-600-8209, or Crime Stoppers at 559-498-7867 or valleycrimestoppers.org, where tips can be made anonymously and may be eligible for a cash reward.
