An off-duty Fresno County sheriff’s deputy was shot Tuesday afternoon while cycling.
The deputy was cycling when he heard a sound and felt something strike his back. The deputy was knocked from his bike.
The deputy saw the rear passenger of a blue SUV pull a rifle back inside the vehicle.
One wonders if the shooter targeted the victim as a cyclist or as a law enforcement officer. The guy was off-duty and likely out of uniform, right?
More in the Fresno Bee. More also at KMPH 26.
Wish I believed the police would take this seriously as a cyclist shot, though I am sure they will as a colleague shot.
