FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – Fresno Police say they are investigating their 60th homicide of 2022 after a man was shot and killed Friday evening.
Police say they responded to a call just after 6:00 p.m. on Jackson and Turner avenues near Belmont and Maple avenues.
When they arrived authorities say they found a man on the street just a block away from Leavenworth Elementary School.
“Unattended, by himself, officers came and found him, he appeared to have at least one gunshot wound to his upper torso, they performed life-saving measures until EMS arrived,” said Lieutenant Robert Dewey.
Officials eventually pronounced him deceased after he arrived at a local hospital.
“EMS arrived shortly thereafter continued life-saving measures, they transported him to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased a short time later,” said Lieutenant Dewey.
Fresno Police say they know little about who he is.
