FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE) — One woman is in the hospital after she was struck by a bullet in the head in central Fresno Tuesday night, according to police.

Shortly before 8 p.m., officers responded to the area of Glenn and Olive avenues for a ShotSpotter activation of ten rounds fired.

When officers arrived, they found a woman sitting inside a grey sedan suffering from a gunshot bullet to the head. While officers were helping the victim, police say a man believed to be related to the woman interfered with the officers and had to be subdued.
