- Developing now, a manhunt is underway after a central Fresno shooting sent a teenage girl to the hospital. Officers were called to Cedar and Clay Avenues just after 9 o'clock last night. Investigators say witnesses told them an argument quickly escalated to violence between a group of people at a family party when a 17-year-old girl was shot in the leg. The victim was rushed to the Community Regional Medical Center, where she's recovering this morning. Now, it's unclear how many people were involved and how many shots were fired, but police say some of the partygoers ran after several people before they got away.

ISRAEL REYES: We're very fortunate that we didn't have a homicide here today, based on the fact that it appears that the shots were going across the road and you have one apartment complex on the north side and residents on the south side. So it could've easily struck somebody else.

- Officers haven't shared a description of the possible gunman, and anyone with information on this shooting is asked to call Fresno police.
