Police in Orange Cove confirm fatal officer-involved shooting


The shooting happened near 4th and Railroad after police responded to a call of a suicidal subject. Investigators from the Fresno County Sheriff's Department said Orange Cove officers arrived at the scene and opened fire shortly after they made contact with the man.

At this point, investigators haven't released what led up to the shooting but police had been to the home before. "There was a family member that called because the invididual was acting out in such a way that it caused concern for the family and from what I understand, again this is all preliminary, the police have been out here before, they do have a history with this individual," said Fresno County Sheriff's Department Detective Leo Lopez.

Investigators haven't said whether the man was armed or released any details about his identity. The two officers involved were not injured in the incident.
