The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office wants to make the public aware of three shooting cases currently being investigated by our deputies and officers with the Kingsburg Police Department.

At 8:30 pm on Wednesday, the Sheriff’s Office received a report of a shooting on the 8500 block of E. Dinuba Ave. in Selma.  Two people said the travel trailer they were inside was struck multiple times by gunfire.  Deputies arrived and did find spent ammunition and damage to the trailer.  No one was injured.  Deputies were unable to determine why this man, woman or property would have been targeted.

At 9:15 pm on Wednesday, Sheriff’s Office dispatchers received a report of shots fired on the 500 block of 10th Ave. in the city of Kingsburg.  (Our agency handles dispatching services for the Kingsburg Police Department).  Kingsburg Police officers responded and the residents told them their home had been struck multiple times by gunfire.  Officers searched the area and found spent ammunition and damage to the home.  No one was injured.  Officers were unable to determine why this family or home would have been targeted.

Thursday morning, the Sheriff’s Office received a report from a homeowner on the 10000 block of E. Elkhorn Ave. in a county portion of Kingsburg.  They said they found damage to their home from gunfire and also discovered spent ammunition on the ground.  Deputies responded and learned from the homeowner that they heard the sound of gunshots around 11:30 pm on Wednesday, but did not pursue it any further.  Deputies were unable to determine why this person or home would have been targeted.

Detectives are working to determine if there is a common connection between all of these cases.  The longest distance between shooting locations is about 10 miles. 

The Sheriff’s Office encourages everyone in the county to be aware of suspicious activity and if you hear what appears to be gunshots, report it to law enforcement immediately.  Anyone with information on these cases or one that is similar, should contact the Sheriff’s Office at (559) 600-3111, Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-7867 or www.valleycrimestoppers.org  You will remain anonymous and may receive a cash reward.
