PARLIER, California – Details about what started as a “suspicious death” call Wednesday night are being released by the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office a day later.
Lt. Jose Salinas says the victim in the shooting is Sandra Portillo de Sanchez, 45, of Sanger.
It all started around 7 p.m. in the 14000 block of Manning Avenue when witnesses reported a domestic disturbance. A few moments later, callers reported shots were fired.
Deputies arrived and detained several people from inside the home, where Portillo de Sanchez was found deceased inside a bedroom, Salinas says.
Detectives say two females began to argue at the home when it escalated to a man joining the argument. A shot was fired by an unknown suspect, killing Portillo de Sanchez.
No arrests have been made, as detectives continue to work the case and interview potential suspects.
