Two arrested in Fresno gang shooting

Two men have been arrested on attempted murder charges in connection with a shooting in January, Fresno police said Tuesday.

The victim was shot seven to nine times on Jan. 10 in the 2100 block of North Marks Avenue, west of Highway 99, police said.

Police identified LaJohn Richardson and Xavier Allen as the suspects in the shooting.

Police announced Tuesday that probation officers arrested Richardson last month. He was booked into Fresno County Jail on charges of attempted murder.

Allen was captured Monday in Sacramento and also faces attempted murder charges.

Richardson and Allen are Fink White Gang Members, police said.
