FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — The three officers that were injured in a shootout in Southeast Fresno Tuesday are out of the hospital and still recovering. But now the investigation begins into what appears to be a staged attack on law enforcement.
Someone called in a tip to police telling officers where wanted felon Jerry Vue had been hiding. Authorities had been looking for Vue for more than a year and sent in a specific task force to go after him.
Someone told detectives that Vue, wanted for kidnapping, rape and torture, was in an apartment complex in Southeast Fresno. A group of officers trained to go after violent criminals descended on that complex.
