Police are investigating the death of a man found Saturday morning in the middle of a central Fresno street.
Officers were dispatched to the Orchard and Yale Avenues area of downtown Fresno around 7 a.m. for calls from a pedestrian lying in the roadway. They were believed to have been hit by a car.
En route to the accident site, additional calls reported that several shots had been fired in the area, Fresno police said.
Officers arrived and found a man on the street. He had been shot at least once and was dead, police said. The victim has not yet been identified, but police say it was an “older man”.
The scene was cleared and the streets reopened on Saturday afternoon, but police continued to search the area for witnesses and surveillance videos.
