Fresno County residents come home to find dead body in garage, victim identified

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno County sheriff's investigators said two people came home to find a dead body in their garage on Sunday afternoon.

The victim in the shooting has been identified as 48-year-old Alphonso Marcus Durazo of Fresno.

Detectives learned that the house has multiple renters living there simultaneously. They are looking for the owners of the home and those who are there on a consistent basis for interviewing.

According to authorities, Durazo has gang history and that some at home are currently involved in gang action.

Detectives say at least eight people live in the house where they found Durazo, and they haven't tracked down everyone yet, but so far nobody admits to knowing him.

The home is at N Peach Ave and Belmont Ave in Fresno County. The area was blocked for several hours.
