Modesto, CA – A late night shooting left a Modesto man dead and detectives looking for witnesses.
At about 10:45 last night, officers responded to several 9-1-1 calls of a shooting in the 1600 block of Nian Way in south Modesto. Once on scene, emergency personnel found 28-year-old Robert Farish who had been shot. He was rushed to a local hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
