Monday Night Shooting Leaves 3-year-old Wounded

Monday evening at about 10:35 PM a man came to the Coalinga Police Department lobby carrying a three-year-old shooting victim in an apparent gang shooting.

Emergency personnel responded and provided medical care for the child. She was then air lifted to Fresno Regional Medical Center for further treatment.

Officers learned that the child had been leaning against her father’s chest in the family living room when five shots were fired into the home. One of the shots hit the child in the shoulder. Another round went through that house and into the home of a neighbor.

Officers are still investigating this incident and further information will be released as it becomes available.

Coalinga Police are asking anyone who has information about this incident to contact the police department: 935-1525. Callers may remain anonymous.
