Fresno Shooting

Police believe the incident started at about 8:17 p.m. Friday when officers responded to reports of a shooting at a Drumm Street hotel along the Embarcadero.

Officers who first responded to the scene found two adult males injured inside the hotel, suffering from gunshot wounds. The victims, one with life-threatening injuries and the other with non-life-threatening injuries, were immediately transported to the hospital.

More police officers arrived at the area and begun a sweep of the establishment while ordering occupants of the hotel to stay in place.

During the investigation, a person who knew the suspect approached detectives and confirmed he wanted to turn himself in to the police. He told authorities the main suspect was hiding in Merced.

Merced Police were called on Saturday and took Gangell into custody. He was transported back to the Bay Area, along with his motorcycle.
