FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- One man is dead and a teen is injured following an apparent shootout in northwest Fresno.

Police say an officer on patrol heard gunshots near the area of Ashlan and Fruit Avenues around 12:20 p.m. Sunday. They added they received multiple calls for a disturbance in the same area.

When the officer went to investigate, they found a man in his 30s with a gunshot wound.

The man was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Investigators say the man who died is the one who initiated the shootout with at least two men and a teenager who were inside a car. Investigators believe they may have known each other.
