Man shot to death outside of his central Fresno apartment while his family was inside
A Friday slaying in northwest Fresno was the result of a dispute over gang ties between two men, police reported Wednesday.
The homicide took place about 9 p.m. at the Hunter Place Apartments, near West Griffith Way and North West Avenue.
Sgt. Chris Serrano said officers arrived at the scene to find Gregory Garza, 23, suffering from multiple gunshots wounds. He died as an ambulance arrived.
Serrano said that detectives identified Michael Garcia, 20, as the suspect in the shooting.
Garcia, who is on parole, was taken into custody at his home Monday and booked on murder charges Wednesday.
Police believe “an interpersonal dispute because of ... opposing gang affiliation” was the motive for the slaying.
