Two people are in jail after a bizarre brawl involving brass knuckles and shotguns in Central Fresno.

Investigators say neighbors called to report a couple armed with shotguns in the area of Olive Avenue and Fresno Street. When officers arrived, they found a man and woman with the loaded weapons confronting another man.

Investigators say the suspects used brass knuckles to fight the victim earlier, but then left to get their guns.

"The individuals were involved in a physical confrontation, they lost the confrontation and then immediately returned with the two shotguns," said Sgt. John Jensen, Fresno Police Department.

Police say the couple reluctantly obeyed their orders to surrender. The suspects are now facing charges for the fight and the weapons.
