A search of the central Fresno home of a man suspected of shooting a gun led to his arrest late Friday night after police found a stolen gun hidden between his bed mattresses.
Police responded to several calls about 10:50 p.m. concerning a disturbance with shots being fired. Officers were led to the home of Elijah Perez, 18, on the 100 block of East Fountain Way.
Perez initially denied involvement in the gunfire disturbance and allowed police to search his home, where they found a gun linked to a theft several days ago along with ammunition.
Perez was booked into Fresno County Jail for negligent discharge of a firearm and possession of a stolen firearm. No one was hurt by the shot Perez fired, police said.
