Two gang members have been arrested, one for assault with a deadly weapon related to a central Fresno shooting on Jan. 18, said Fresno Police Sgt. Jerardo Chamalbide.
During the investigation of the shooting at Marks and Ashlan avenues that injured one man, detectives located a suspect Monday in east-central Fresno, a 27-year-old Fresno gang member, police said.
Information gleaned by detectives from the 27-year-old led them to issue two search warrants for additional residences in east-central and central Fresno.
At the east-central location Thursday, detectives arrested another gang member, 26, of Riverdale, who is on felony probation and is an ex-felon, police said. He was booked into Fresno County Jail for being an ex-felon in possession of a weapon, police said.
Detectives don't believe the 26-year-old was involved in the Jan. 18 shooting, but a handgun found will be tested to determine if it was used.
