The search is on for a suspect after a drive-by shooting in Fresno sent a man to the hospital. It happened around eleven last night in the area of Shields near Parkway.

Police said a man in his 20's was riding his bike eastbound on Shields when a vehicle passed by, made a u-turn, and came back toward the rider. Someone inside fired several gun shots hitting the victim.

The man on the bike was taken to Community Regional Medical Center where he was taken into surgery.
