Fresno Police investigate quadruple shooting

Four shot during memorial service.

 
Red and blue police lights and caution tape are not what you would expect to see at a memorial service. 
 
"I heard nine gunshots," says one neighbor who did not want to be identified, "I heard all the people screaming why here get away."
 
This neighbor we spoke to was afraid to show her face because of what happened.
 
"From what I hear they just came from a funeral and they were serving funeral to their guests," she says.
 
Just before 3 PM Friday shots rang out near her home at the Raisin Center Lodge in Southwest Fresno on the 800 block of Fresno St.
 
Four people were struck and transported, some in private cars, to Community Regional Medical Center in downtown.  
 
"Four victims here at the hospital," says Lt. Joe Gomez from the Fresno Police Department. 
 
Two female victims and a male are expected to survive, the other male has life threatening injuries, all are Hispanic adults in their 20's or 30's.
 
The shooter is still al large. 
 
"We do have a description in the call an African American male came running with a gun northbound from where the shooting occurred," says Gomez. 
 
Family and friends were visibly emotionally upset crowded outside the emergency room later Friday evening. 
 
They were attending a funeral for Brandon Porraz who died in a motorcycle accident last month. 
 
"It is scary, it is sad you know that we have this all this type of crime," says the neighbor.
 
Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers at 498-STOP.
