Deadly shooting at Fresno bowling alley after two men get into heated argument, witnesses say

 A man was killed late Friday night during a shooting at a north Fresno bowling alley, according to police.

It happened just after 10:30 p.m. at the Bowlero, located at Blackstone and Sierra avenues.

A pair of witnesses who were inside the bowling alley said an argument broke out between two men, and both became visibly upset.

One of the men walked out of bowling alley after the heated exchange then came back inside — only to go back outside again then inside once more.

During his final time walking back into the crowded Bowlero, the man re-approached the other man near the front entryway and pulled out a gun, according to the witnesses who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Fresno Police confirmed the victim was shot twice in the upper torso.

The witnesses, who did not know the shooter nor the victim, said they performed CPR on the wounded man until an emergency medical crew arrived.

Fresno Police said the victim, who was in his late 30s to early 40s, died while being transported to St. Agnes Medical Center. The victim’s identity was not immediately released.

Within seconds of the shots being fired, witnesses said the bowling alley empty quickly as people screamed and rushed to the exit doors.

The shooter also fled the scene, police said.

Police did not have an immediate description available of the shooter.

Though no one else was shot, it’s unclear if anyone else was hurt during the melee.

Police reported several people were spotted running around the parking lot.

All the while, multiple vehicles took off from the bowling alley as dozens of police cars swarmed to the location after reports on an active shooter inside.

A single-car accident occurred on Sierra, just east of Blackstone, as a result of leaving the bowling alley in a hurry, police said.

Blackstone and Sierra avenues were blocked off in the area.

A helicopter also circled the area.
