A 24-year-old gang member was arrested Wednesday night on a weapons charge in southwest Fresno, police reported.
Officers from the Violent Crime Impact Team tried to stop a person on a bicycle near California Avenue and Martin Luther King Blvd. The man, identified as David Ruiz, 24, jumped off the bike and ran.
Ruiz dropped something behind a car before he was detained, police Sgt. Brian Valles said. Officers recovered a loaded 9 mm handgun.
Valles said Ruiz is a 6 Deuce Diamond gang member with an extensive criminal history.
