The plants towering above the fence in a yard across the street from Roeding Park attracted thieves and prompted a resident to shoot and mortally wound one of them as he attempted to get away. Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer says Wednesday's shooting it's just the latest example of violence at a marijuana garden. "What we're facing here in Fresno is the beginning of what could be something very, very bad and very, very dangerous in our city and to the citizens of our community."
