Two women shot with a shotgun in Central Fresno

FRESNO, Calif.

Authorities have blocked off a number of streets in the neighborhood while they try to find out what happened. But they do have a number of people detained - they may even have the shooter in custody.

Police were called to the scene around 7:30 Wednesday night. When they arrived they found two victims, one had been shot in the face, she's in critical condition. The other woman was shot in the back. She was reportedly helping police and did provide a statement in route to the hospital.

Lt. Mike Doyle said, "The neighborhood has helped out greatly by calling and pointing out people involved in the group. It appears there was a disturbance earlier in the day which led to a shooting."

Both women are at the hospital. Police are still trying to figure out who pulled the trigger and why. No arrests have been made at this time.
