Around 2:00 am on Sunday, November 26th, Huron Police responded to a call of shots fired on the 36000 block of Mouren Drive in Huron.

Due to this being a homicide, Huron Police requested Fresno County Sheriff’s detectives take over the investigation. Detectives and members of our Crime Scene Unit responded to Huron to collect evidence and speak with witnesses.
