Fresno police on Tuesday announced the arrest of a Bulldog gang member wanted in last month's shooting at Fashion Fair mall.
Bond Street Bulldog gang member Pete Tumoine, 22, of Fresno, was identified as the person responsible for the shooting, Lt. Mark Salazar said.
The shooting happened about 7:30 p.m. Dec. 13 as the victim, a 28-year-old Madera man, was walking out of the mall with family and friends.
Salazar said the group had previously encountered two males inside the mall but no words were exchanged. They crossed paths again outside, as the two males were inside a vehicle and drove close to the group. The car veered toward them, almost making contact.
The 28-year-old victim hit the car with his hand as it drove by. The car stopped and the driver got out and shot the victim in the foot.
On Friday, plainclothes detectives followed Tumoine to a business complex at Fruit and Shaw avenues in northwest Fresno. Tumoine was arrested and booked into the Fresno County jail. The District Attorney's Office filed charges against Tumoine on Tuesday, Salazar said.
