SAN JOAQUIN, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that occurred just after midnight Saturday in San Joaquin that left three men injured.

A fourth person later told officers that he was also shot at down the street but was not hit.

Three of the victims were taken to an area hospital for treatment and were expected to survive, Salinas said.

A suspect vehicle involved in the shooting was only described as “dark-colored.”
