Crime

FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — A man was shot to death Saturday morning after a neighbor disturbance turned violent in northeast Fresno, according to Fresno Police.

The shooting was reported around 10 a.m. in the area of Sierra Avenue and Clark Street, just east of Blackstone Avenue at Trail End mobile home park.

When the officers arrived they determined that the shooting stemmed from an on-going dispute between two neighbors at the park.

Authorities say there had been prior verbal disturbance between the victim and the suspect earlier that morning but both parties separated.

A short time later the victim was standing outside of his trailer with his family when the suspect drove up in a vehicle and shot at the victim several times.

The suspect fled the area in a vehicle and the victim died from his injuries.

Authorities say the suspect, later identified as a 49-year-old man from Fresno turned himself in and was taken into custody just before 5 p.m. without incident.
