REEDLEY, California. (KSEE/KGPE) – A man is dead after he was shot outside a Reedley produce plant Tuesday evening, according to police.
At around 6:00 p.m., the Reedley Police Department says Elizandro Diaz Jr., 27, was found suffering from a gunshot wound at the Brevante Produce packaging plant on Buttonwillow Avenue.
When officers arrived, they learned Diaz was a worker from the plant and on his lunch break when he got into an argument with someone at the Oaks Mini Mart. Following the argument, police say the suspect followed Diaz back to the plant and shot him once in the lower torso.
Diaz was taken to a local hospital, where police say he later died from his injuries.
Officers are examining surveillance footage from the market to help identify the shooter.
