Tulare Co. Sheriffs investigate shooting in Orosi

March 15, 2013 12:00:00 AM PDT
Just before 5 p.m. Friday, investigators received several 911 calls. Employees at a gas station at Avenue 416 and Road 126 called because a victim of a gunshot wound turned up at the store.

Authorities say the victim, a 19-year-old man, was shot in both the upper and lower body.

He was airlifted to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno with life-threatening injuries.

Lt. Mark Gist of Tulare County Sheriff's Office said, "Unfortunately at this point, we're not getting a lot of cooperation from the person involved or an immediate relative that was with him."

Investigators are having a difficult time finding where the actual shooting took place.

So far, authorities have not made any arrests in this case.
