FRESNO, California. (KSEE/KGPE) – A man was shot and killed at an apartment complex in southeast Fresno on Tuesday afternoon, according to the Fresno Police Department.
Around 3:30 p.m., officers were called out to the Ranchwood Condominiums on Winery and Lane avenues after it was reported a man had been shot.
When officers arrived, they found a man in his early 60s suffering from at least one gunshot wound to his upper body.
Officers immediately began performing lifesaving efforts on the man, but he ended up passing away from his injuries.
While investigating, officers learned the man had been in a verbal argument with a man in his 20s or 30s at a condo in the complex.
During the argument, police say the younger man pulled out a gun and shot the older man.
The shooter then ran away on foot and was eventually identified as a resident of the apartment complex.
Officers began working on securing a search warrant for the man’s apartment as they continued searching through the complex for him.
As officers were searching, they found the man hiding in a nearby apartment that wasn’t his own.
After the suspect came out of the apartment, he ended up collapsing on the ground.
Police say he was not injured by officers and it is unknown what caused him to collapse.
He was placed under arrest and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
