FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno police are investigating a late afternoon shooting that left one man dead. Police responded to the Stonegate Apartments in Northwest Fresno just after 4:30pm Thursday afternoon.

A man who lives inside a bottom-floor apartment told police that a man entered his apartment, sat down, and started to say crazy things. Police say the tenant went and got his shotgun, and after some kind of exchange, shot the other man in the torso.

The shooting victim was transported to Community Regional Medical Center in critical condition, where he later died. Fresno police detained the tenant, and an investigation is underway.
