Victim shot, grazed by bullet in southeast Fresno. Police say it could be a mistaken identity case


A victim was shot in southeast Fresno Thursday night, and police saying it could have been a case of mistaken identity.

Lt. Bill Dooley with the Fresno Police Department says shortly before 8 p.m., the victim and some friends were in the area of Clay Avenue and Fisher Street when a shooter came out of the darkness and shot at them.

The victim’s back was grazed by a bullet, and Dooley says they are in stable condition at Community Regional Medical Center.

The victim and their friends say they do not have enemies, or have gang affiliations, leading officers to believe they were unintended targets of the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fresno Police Department at 559-621-7000.
