FRESNO – A Fresno man is accused of killing his wife of 12 years with their two children in the next room.
Daniel Galvan, 34, was arrested by the Fresno Police Department in the homicide of his wife, 41-year-old AnnMarie Galvan, on Monday night in southeast Fresno.
Around 10:30 p.m. on Monday, officers responded to a call about shots being fired in the 3700 block of North Ezie Avenue near Dakota Avenue. Officers spoke with witnesses who said that Daniel Galvan was inside the home armed with a gun. Police surrounded the home and quickly convinced Galvan to come outside where he was arrested.
Inside the home, officers found the body of AnnMarie Galvan, who died from gunshot wounds to the upper body. They also found the couple’s two children, a 4-year-old son and a 9-year-old son, who were in the home when the shooting took place.
Although the couple had a rocky relationship, they had recently decided to work things out. They had been separated for several months, but reunited two weeks ago and began living together with family members.
“We don’t know what sparked the shooting,” said Lt. Mark Salazar with the Fresno Police Department.
Daniel Galvan had a history of domestic violence. On March 31, Galvan was arrested for obstructing an officer and for violating a domestic violence restraining order. According to police, Galvan told the officer that he was a Bulldog gang member and he would lay his paws wherever he wanted.
Galvan was known to use methamphetamine, but it is unknown whether he was on drugs at the time of the shooting, police said.
Galvan was booked into the Fresno County Jail.
