Investigators are still piecing together the bizarre fight that ended with one gang member in the hospital, and two others in custody.

Officers rushed to a home on Augusta near Gettysburg in Northeast Fresno, just before 7 p.m. Sunday, after getting reports of a shooting.

Police said a man, who lives near a troubled park in the area, spotted the gang members outside his house. He first confronted them with a machete, but one of the suspects got a baseball bat out of a car nearby and knocked the weapon out of the man’s hand.

Some of the resident’s family members then joined the fight, which ended after the man grabbed a rifle and opened fire.
