A woman was shot to death Wednesday night inside a home in Parlier, according to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were called out around 7:15 p.m. to a home at the 1400th block of Manning Avenue, near Newmark Avenue, about domestic violence.

A woman was found inside a bedroom at the home. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

She was identified Thursday by the Fresno County Coroner’s Office as Sandra Portillo de Sanchez, a 45-year-old Sanger resident.

No arrests have been made.

Five people were in the home at the time, and officers ordered them all to exit.

Deputies said an argument broke out at the home between two women. At some point during the fight, another man joined the argument. A gun was fired by someone inside the home, striking and killing the victim.

Investigators said everyone at the home has been identified and there are no suspects sought. They offered no comment on why no arrests have been made.
