From the Office of Sheriff, County of Kings:
“On Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 Kings County Deputies were dispatched to 18780 Idaho Avenue to investigate the stabbing of two males. Upon arrival Deputies located Pedro Gomez and Carlos Ramirez lying on the ground in front of the home. Both victims had been stabbed in the chest and were transported to Kaweah Delta Hospital in Visalia and Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno.
Prior to being transported the victims were able to provide a statement and description of the vehicle driven by the suspect which was a brown Chevrolet Tahoe. A short time later the Major Crimes Unit located the suspect vehicle near the town of Armona.
Four subjects in the Tahoe were detained. During a search of the Tahoe Investigators located two knives and a small amount of Methamphetamine.
Kings County Detectives continued with the investigation and located a witness to the stabbing. The witness identified the driver of the Tahoe (Isidro Barojas) as the person who stabbed the victims. The stabbing apparently was a result of a civil dispute regarding a vehicle. The three passengers in the Tahoe were interviewed and released.
Isidro Barojas was booked into the Kings County Jail on attempted murder charges.
The Kings County Rural Crimes Task Force located an illegal Marijuana grow on the victims property. The Marijuana plants were eradicated and had a street value of approximately $83,000.00.
The investigation was a group effort between the Kings County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division, Major Crimes Unit, Detective Division and the Rural Crimes Task Force.”
