FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – Police are investigating after a 15-year-old boy was dropped off at a local hospital with gunshot wounds Thursday morning in northwest Fresno, according to Fresno Police officers.

Fresno Police say they received multiple calls in the area of Herndon and Polk avenues just after 6 a.m. with reports of multiple shots being fire.

Shortly after, police say around 6:30 a.m. a 15-year-old boy was dropped off at a local hospital suffering from gunshot wounds to the abdomen and upper leg.

Detectives say the victim was initially uncooperative with police in providing information on the location of the shooting, but upon investigation, the incident was linked back to the area near Escalon and Dante avenues.
