A man was shot and killed just out­side of his apart­ment Fri­day night in cen­tral Fresno.

His fam­ily was just a feet away in­side the apart­ment when it all hap­pened.

Fresno Po­lice said the vic­tim, iden­ti­fied as a His­panic man who is in his 20s, was shot as many as five times around 9 p.m. at the Hunter Place Apart­ment com­plex near the West and Ash­lan av­enues in­ter­sec­tion.

Paramedics per­formed CPR, but the vic­tim died at the scene. His name was not re­leased.

Wit­nesses told po­lice the vic­tim got into an ar­gu­ment out­side of his apart­ment with the gun­man, who even­tu­ally started fir­ing shots.

No ar­rests have yet to be made and the shooter re­mains loose.

Kevin Mat­lock said he was in­side his apart­ment when he heard about nine shots and, a short time later, saw 10 to 15 po­lice cars out­side.

“I’ve lived here for three years and this is only the sec­ond time some­thing this se­ri­ous has hap­pened,” said Mat­lock. “It’s pretty quiet and ev­ery­one is friendly.”

Mat­lock said the vic­tim and his chli­dren were at the pool ear­lier that day.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact Fresno Po­lice.
