Man shot in the face in southwest Fresno

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Police are searching for the suspect who shot a man in the face in southwest Fresno.

A shot-spotter alerted police to a shooting at California and Fresno just after 10 pm.

Police say they detected 13 shots were fired in the area, but couldn't find a victim at that location.

Investigators eventually found the victim at the hospital with a bullet wound that grazed his cheek.

Officers believe the suspect drove off quickly after the shooting.

"It does appear that a vehicle had driven by and fired at a group of people standing outside Wayne's liquor," says Fresno Police Lt. Bill Dooley.

Investigators say the victim - a man in his mid-20s - is not cooperating.

We're told all the witnesses left the scene before police arrived.
