A Tulare man was shot in an alley altercation.

The man, whose identity wasn't given by police Tuesday night, was shot just after 4 p.m. in the alley off Alpine Avenue and F Street. The area, mostly residential, is closed to the public while officers and detectives scour for clues.

Police are focusing their efforts on a home on nearby E Street, where a suspect may be hiding. However, police haven't said if an arrest has been made or a shooter identified. The SWAT team was called to the scene around 5:30 p.m. and are looking for the shooter.

Police said the shooting may be connected with an incident earlier in the city, but it's too early to know.

The man was rushed via Highway 99 to Visalia's Kaweah Medical Center. His condition wasn't immediately known. It's unclear why medical crews didn't take him to Tulare's Adventist Hospital.

An ambulance that originally showed up to transport the man got stuck in a sinkhole and a second ambulance was called to rush the man to the Visalia hospital.
