Fresno boy, 12, dies from gunshot wounds

Monday, December 17, 2012

A 12-year-old boy shot in a Fresno shooting last week has died.

Investigators identified the child as Matthew Castillo. He was hit by one of several bullets fired into his family's home on Illinois and Backer in East Central Fresno, Tuesday night. He's been in the hospital on life support since then.

Police believe the boy was an innocent victim, and that someone else in the house was the target.
