Fresno Police say two people have been detained after a man was shot in the torso in Downtown Fresno.



"I think one saving grace we had here is that the courthouse was actually closed today for the Lincoln holiday," Tony Botti with the FCSO said. "This place would have been flooded with even more people."

Paramedics took the shooting victim to the hospital. They say he was conscious and talking at the time.

At this point, a motive for the shooting is still unclear.
