FRESNO, California (KGPE) – A 17-year-old boy is dead after police say the car he was in was shot at Monday.

The shooting took place in Fresno around 7 p.m., at the intersection of Grant and Barton avenues.

Officers arrived at the scene and reported finding the 17-year-old in the driver’s seat of the car with multiple gunshot wounds. Despite life-saving efforts, the victim passed away a short time later in the hospital.

Police say there were several people standing around the car when they arrived. A teenage passenger in the vehicle was identified and he told investigators he did not see the suspect and lost consciousness following the shooting. He awoke after officers arrived. The witness was uninjured.

“We are looking for witnesses, surveillance video, really anything that may have information about who did this or what happened,” said Fresno Police Lt. Bill Dooley.

Fresno Police located shell casings in the area where the witness said the shooting took place. There is no suspect information at this time.
