A 16-year-old girl succumbed to her injuries after a June 20 shooting, according to Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer.

The shooting happened around 3:30 a.m. in the 1400 block of Whitney Avenue, near Butler and Chestnut avenues.

Twenty-two rounds were picked up by the ShotSpotter alert system. And six minutes later, the teen shooting victim showed up at Community Regional Medical Center.

More than a dozen shell casings were found at the scene, and possible witnesses were uncooperative with the investigation, Dyer says.

However, they served a search warrant and found a gun at the home. During that time, a second shooting victim showed up at CRMC with a bullet lodged in his neck, Dyer explained.

Evidence of “an exchange of gunfire” was found at the home. The second victim was questioned about the shooting, but Dyer says he wasn’t being truthful about the events that transpired.

On Saturday around 7 p.m., the 16-year-old girl died at the hospital.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Fresno Police Det. Raul Diaz at 559-621-2449.
