Lt. Mark Hudson said officers stopped a car carrying Diaz and four other men near El Dorado Avenue and E Street a short time after it was reported that shots were fired nearby.
They found that Diaz had a head laceration and discovered he was in possession of a gun. The officers also learned that another man had been shot on nearby Oleander.
The investigation determined that the gunshot victim was inside his home playing video games when he heard a disturbance outside. He became involved in the fight and was shot in the thigh, allegedly by Diaz, who fled with the other men.
