FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) -Just two days before the new year on Dec. 30, the city of Fresno had its 61st homicide for 2022. Less than 24 hours after Jan. 1, the city had its first homicide of 2023.
Police say they responded around 5:15 p.m. to an apartment complex parking lot on Fruit Avenue and Saginaw Way for a report of shots fired and a gunshot wound victim.
When authorities arrived, they say they found a man in his 30s suffering from several gunshot wounds in his upper and lower body.
The man was transported to a nearby hospital but died a short time later according to officials.
Police say they are currently on scene gathering information from witnesses.
The Fresno Police Department says the incident appears to be the result of a personal dispute between the two parties which leads them to believe there is no risk to the public at this point.
