Man shot in drive-by shooting in Southwest Fresno; police search for suspect

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A manhunt is underway in southwest Fresno after a 29-year-old man was shot in the chest outside of a home on Saturday afternoon.

That victim doesn't live in the home but is known to frequent it. Police say he likely has gang ties.

"Information we have now is that he was the only one out there, so it does appear he was targeted," said Lt. Joe Gomez.

Police say it happened just before 12:30 p.m. They were called to Pottle and Merced for a driveby shooting.

Neighbors didn't want to speak on camera but say they heard up to 5 shots, and that this is common for the area.

One man tells me this is the fourth shooting in three years.

The man was taken to Community Regional Medical Center and is in critical condition.

Detectives are working to track down the shooter. They say there is likely more than one person involved.

Police say they don't have a shooter description, but they are looking for a grey 2015 Chevy Camaro.

They say the suspects were last seen driving south on Pottle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fresno Police Department.
