An 18-year-old man was arrested for the shooting of a young woman and beating of a second woman, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office confirmed.
Julian Josue Pacheco, was booked into Fresno County Jail early Tuesday as the shooter at a home in the 300 block of Fourth Street near Fresno Street on Monday. He was arrested at his home on Ruby Street in Fowler.
A girl was shot and a woman pistol-whipped in the incident, police said.
The victims didn’t have life-threatening injuries and were treated and released, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office reported.
The two assailants, both men, were known to the victims. They fled in a black or brown car.
Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Botti said Pacheco told detectives that he believed the women had taken items from his home.
Detectives interviewed the second man, who said he didn’t know Pacheco would shoot the victims. He wasn’t arrested.
Pacheco is in Fresno County Jail facing one count of attempted murder and a count of assault with a firearm. His bail is set at $535,000.
