FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – Four people were shot after a large fight broke out on Monday night, according to the Fresno Police Department.

Around 6:15 p.m., officers responded to the area of Normal Avenue and Mayfair Boulevard after the department’s ShotSpotter system had detected a total of 25 rounds had been fired nearby.

When officers arrived, they reportedly found shell casings in the roadway and a semi-automatic handgun on a sidewalk but did not find anyone who had been hit by gunfire.

A short time later, officers learned that three men and a woman suffering from gunshot wounds had been dropped off at a local hospital.
