Crime

The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office is investigating three separate shootings that occurred Wednesday night. 

Around 8:30 pm on Wednesday, the sheriff’s office received a report of a shooting on the 8500 block of E. Dinuba Ave. in Selma. 

Two people said the travel trailer they were inside of was struck multiple times by gunfire. When deputies arrived on scene they found spent ammunition and damage to the trailer. Luckily, no one was injured. Deputies say they do not have a motive to this shooting, or know why the couple or property was targeted. 

Later in the day, around 9:15 pm the sheriff’s office got a call of shots fired on the 500 block of 10th Ave. in the city of Kingsburg. Residents told officers their home had been struck by gunfire multiple times. Kingsburg Police officers searched the area and found spent ammunition and damage to the home. No one was injured.

On Thursday morning, the sheriff’s office received a report from a homeowner in Kingsburg that their home was hit by gunfire. Deputies responded to the 10000 block of E. Elkhorn Ave., once on scene the homeowner told them they heard gunshots around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. The homeowner then told officials they found spent ammunition on the ground and damage to their home. 

Detectives are now working to determine if there is a common connection between the cases. The sheriff’s office says the longest distance between the locations are about 10 miles.

Luckily, no one was injured in either case. 

Anyone with any information on these shootings are urged to contact the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office. The department is encouraging everyone to be aware of suspicious activity; and if people hear gunshots it should be reported to law enforcement immediately.
