FRESNO – Police are searching for a woman they believe is responsible for opening fire on her own parents early Saturday morning.
The incident happened at 3:15 a.m. on Saturday when police responded to a report of two shooting victims at a house near Belmont and Orchard avenues. Upon arriving at the home, officers discovered a 49-year-old man and a 47-year-old woman with gunshot wounds to their legs.
The suspect in the incident is a seemingly unlikely one – their daughter. Detectives believe 24-year-old Lisa Alarcon was responsible for shooting her mom and dad while they slept in bed. Detectives said that Alarcon was in a vehicle driven by an unidentified male. They pulled up to the home and Alarcon fired a handful of shots through her parents’ bedroom window.
Alarcon and the driver fled the scene. Police later located the vehicle, but there was no sign of either suspect or a weapon. Alarcon has been missing since the shooting and she is considered armed and dangerous, according to authorities.
A motive is not yet clear for the shooting. Police say Alarcon had been at her parents’ house earlier in the evening and she had been upset with them. Although the family was having issues, the problems were not major enough for it to lead to this extreme, police said.
Alarcon’s parents were taken to Community Regional Medical Center for treatment for their non-threatening injuries. They have since been released.
Alarcon, who has no past criminal record, is now wanted for two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. She could possibly be facing more serious charges such as attempted murder.
