Fresno High School Student
Student arrives at school with a gun shot wound
Fresno High School student arrives with gunshot injury. It is always scary to have senseless crimes occur, especially near our home or involving innocent youths. In this case, it was reported that the teen was approached around 1 a.m. and questioned about his gang affiliation. The report states that the student denied any affiliation with gangs, yet the driver of the vehicle that approached the student shot the student despite his lack of gang affilliation.
It is interested to note that the injury, to the students foot, was reported the following day, after the student arrived at school. As a criminal defense attorney I can think of several reasons why the student did not report the incident sooner, however, many of those reasons are not very good. Further, it is of note the student was in a high crime area around 1 a.m. when the events alleged were reported to take place.
