A man is in critical condition after he was shot several times Sunday in central Fresno, according to the Fresno Police Department.

The shooting happened around 5:15 p.m. near Highway 41 at Thesta Street and Sussex Way. Police say the victim was shot multiple times by a suspect who is still on the loose as of Sunday at 6:30 p.m.

Police say because the shooting happened on the embankment of the highway, it could be California Highway Patrol’s jurisdiction, but that has yet to be determined.

The victim’s girlfriend was with him at the time of the shooting. She is uninjured, and is cooperating with the investigation.

The victim remains at Community Regional Medical Center in critical condition.
