Investigators from the Kings County Sheriff’s Office and Kings County Major Crimes Task Force began gathering evidence and speaking with witnesses, through which they were able to identify Sergio Cisneros Barrita (19) and Jose Luis Barrita (21) as the primary suspects.
Though the two had fled the area, they were quickly found hiding out at a residence in Fresno.
Both subjects were taken into custody and booked on suspicion of attempted murder.
