Man Shot During Fresno Home Invasion; Two Shot in Separate Incident

FRESNO – Police are looking for two men they say forced their way into a Fresno home and shot a resident in front of his family.

Corner of Marks and Fairmont

The shooting happened at a home near Marks and Fairmont avenues around 10 p.m. on Tuesday, according to Fresno police. Two armed males knocked on the front door of the home and then forced their way into the house.

“They physically assaulted our victim,” said Lt. Tom Rowe with the Fresno Police Department. The 30-year-old victim was shot in the upper left arm while other family members watched. “They’re pretty shaken up,” Rowe said about the other residents.

The victim was able to give officers a detailed description of the suspects before he was taken to Community Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for serious but non-life threatening injuries. Investigators have determined that the home was targeted by the suspects, who fled the scene, Rowe said. No other information was available.

In a separate incident on Tuesday night, two people were shot near the area of Church and Elm streets in Fresno. The victims were attacked at an apartment complex by two males. The suspects, described as Hispanic males, approached the two victims who were in the lawn area of the complex and “unprovoked apparently, fired multiple rounds towards them,” Rowe said.

The two shooting victims were taken to Community Regional Medical Center and are expected to recover. Anyone with information on either shooting is encouraged to call the Fresno Police Department.
