Man Found Shot in Alley Near Fresno State Dies

The Fresno County Coroner's Office identified Cameron Ireland, 23, as the victim who was shot and tossed in an alley near Fresno State.

The man who was shot in the head Monday night in an alley near Fresno State has died.

The Fresno County Coroner's office has identified the victim as Cameron Ireland, 23, of Fresno.

Police responded to the area of Sixth Street and San Bruno Avenue west of Fresno State just before 10:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police said witnesses told them they saw Ireland being pushed out of a moving vehicle.

One neighbor said he heard a commotion and at least one gunshot before going outside to see what had happened.

"I'm quite sure it was about one that I heard. And when I came out, right there by that car, the boys was standing around and he was on the ground. And then next thing you know, cops," Robert Percy Taylor said.

Ireland was taken to Community Regional Medical Center in very critical condition but died early Tuesday morning.

Police said witnesses saw a light-colored vehicle drive away at a high rate of speed.

Tuesday, detectives investigated at the Kings Court Apartments where Ireland lived.

"Right now we're talking to family members, so the coroner will be talking to them as well. But right now, we're looking at a gang-related incident," said Lt. Mark Salazar with the Fresno Police Department.

Police have not yet named any suspects.

This is the city's 40th homicide of the year. Last year, there were 51 homicides in Fresno at the end of the year, Salazar said.

Police ask anyone with information on this case to call Crime Stoppers at 498-STOP. Police are offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
