48-year-old man injured in exchange of gunfire with Fresno police

FRESNO, California (KFSN) – Police are working to investigate an early morning shooting in downtown Fresno.

It all started around 2:15 a.m. Sunday when police responded to gunshots at a home in Weldon near Wilson.

When police arrived, they found a bullet hole in the wall of a child’s bedroom.

It was then that the police found the suspect, a 48-year-old man who was leaving his home and acting hostile to the authorities.

He turned inside and refused to leave.

At 4 a.m., the suspect suddenly fired a gun through a window, causing two Fresno police officers to shoot.

This prompted a SWAT team to respond to the scene.

About 40 minutes later, the suspect was handed over to police.

He was taken to hospital, where he is being treated for a gunshot wound to the head and is in custody.

Closed roads remain on the east side of Fresno High School.

This should continue throughout the morning and until late afternoon.
