Shots fired at Fresno County deputies as they chased car being stolen

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A man is in custody after crashing a stolen car in southwest Fresno.

Fresno County Sheriff's deputies and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) were monitoring a stolen car in the area of Golden State and Jensen, when they say they saw 32-year-old Fabian Mansanalez get in and drive off.

Authorities began to follow Mansanalez and that's when he started to speed.

While traveling through an alley, deputies heard gunshots but are unsure if they came from Mansanalez.

Eventually, he got out of his car, which slammed into a parked car near Amador and Whitesbridge.

Deputies arrested him a short time later and are now determining whether he fired any shots at officers.
