Man Arresting for Allegedly Firing Shots at Vehicle in Fresno
FRESNO – A man was arrested Tuesday morning for allegedly firing his gun at an occupied vehicle in southeast Fresno.
According to police, suspect Dionicio Carlos Ramirez, 28, pulled out a handgun and fired two shots at people in the vehicle on 3832 East Iowa Avenue. Ramirez and the victims had been involved in a verbal disturbance, police said.
Officers found Ramirez later that day at Third Street and Washington Avenue, where he tried to get into a car and drive away, according to police.
Officers were able to ram his vehicle and apprehend Ramirez. Inside the vehicle, they found a loaded 9mm handgun, which is believed to be the same gun that was used in the shooting earlier that day, according to police.
Ramirez was booked into Fresno County Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, shooting into a vehicle, and weapons possession by a felon, police said.
He is also wanted in connection to several other shootings, which are still under investigation, according to the police.
Ramirez had recently been arrested, on January 12, for a felony parole violation, and on December 30 for possession of a controlled substance and a felony parole violation. And on September 24 he was charged with possession of burglar’s tools and the illegal manufacture, importation, or sale of nunchaku – also known as nunchucks – sticks connected by a chain or rope and used as a weapon. Further details of those incidents were not available.
