The Fresno County Coroner’s Office identified two people who died in separate incidents Saturday.
Johnny Ruiz, 25, of Fresno, was killed in a drive-by shooting around 10:45 p.m. near Peach and Huntington avenues. He and another man were dropped off at Community Regional Medical Center shortly after the shooting. The other victim, a 23-year-old man, was listed in stable condition Saturday.
Police are still searching for a suspect, described as a Hispanic man driving a white Chevy Malibu with a Fresno State sticker on the back window.
Dorothy Valiant, 70, of Fresno, died earlier that day when her home on Cornell Avenue near Shields and Maroa avenues caught fire. A firefighter was burned slightly during a rescue attempt. Investigators believe Valiant was in the room where the fire started. The home did not have smoke detectors. Two other residents escaped unharmed.
