EXETER, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — A man was killed in a Wednesday evening drive-by shooting in the Tulare County town of Exeter, according to the Exeter Police Department.

Officers responded to the area of Filbert Road and Maple Street around 8 p.m. for a report of a person suffering from gunshot wounds, police said. When officers arrived, they found a 58-year-old man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Bystanders had already started first aid on the victim and medical assistance was immediately requested.
