Four gang members are in custody and another is sought in connection with a fight at Fresno’s Fashion Fair mall earlier this month that went viral on the Internet, Fresno police say.
Lt. Mark Salazar of the Street Violent Section said the aftermath of the Feb. 7 fight included eight shootings involving southwest Fresno gangs. Detectives served 10 search warrants this week for two gangs involved in the fight.
Strother Boy gang member Quran Robinson, 21 was arrested Wednesday for his role in the mall fight and booked on charges of felony assault, gang enhancements and robbery. Salazar said Robinson admitted taking a necklace from a man beaten in the disturbance. Thursday, detectives served more warrants and arrested Strother Boy gang member Howard Walters, 28 on felony assault charges. A third Strother gang member, Tyrone Smith, 19, was already in custody on weapons charges but now faces felony assault charges as well, and a fourth, Demariea Robinson, 20, turned himself in Thursday night.
One gang member is sought in connection with the sweep: Isaiah Moore, 20.
