Two men were arrested late Monday after a vehicle was struck by gunfire in southwest Fresno.
The incident occurred about 11 p.m. at Fresno and B streets. Police Sgt. Jordan Beckford said officers heard multiple gunshots coming from the intersection and saw a silver Nissan pickup driving without its headlights on. Witnesses told officers the gunfire came from the truck.
After pulling over the pickup, officers detained the driver, Louie Perez, 52, passenger Maximilliano Cotino, 24, and a juvenile, 15. A search of the vehicle turned up a .380 caliber pistol and a 9 mm Smith and Wesson revolver with one live round, along with four spent shell casings, Beckford said.
Officers also located a Toyota pickup truck at Highway 41 and Jensen Avenue whose occupants reported the truck was hit by a bullet at Fresno and B streets, causing a flat tire.
