A 16-year-old was arrested Monday after allegedly firing a semiautomatic handgun at two other boys after an argument around 9 a.m. just one block away from Reedley High School, the Reedley Police Department said.
The 16-year-old was found by detectives two blocks away from the scene. A semi-automatic handgun was also located near the suspect. The two victims were found uninjured seven hours later at a home in Reedley. Detectives said they believe unspecified gang problems fueled the dispute between the three.
The 16-year-old was booked into the Fresno County Jail on suspicion of resisting arrest, assault with a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm, possession of a firearm within a school zone and discharging a firearm within a school zone.
Anyone with information regarding this shooting is asked to contact the Reedley Police Department at (559) 637-4250.
