Suspect Arrested in Connection with Clearlake Shooting Incident

“Press Release

On May 15, 2024, at about 9:30 am, 31-year-old Fernando Lugo-Garcia was taken into custody by Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office Detectives with the Violent Crime Investigations Unit and Property Crime/Narcotics Unit for an active Lake County arrest warrant. The warrant was for murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and several firearms-related offenses, including being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm and ammunition.

The circumstances that led to the arrest warrant for Lugo-Garcia stemmed from a report of a shooting that occurred during a party in the 14000 block of Uhl Avenue in Clearlake on March 23, 2024, in which a 2-year-old male died. Clearlake Police Officers and later Detectives responded to the scene, which Lugo Garcia had already fled.

During the investigation, probable cause to believe that Lugo-Garcia was the suspect in the shooting was developed, and that he was living in the Santa Rosa area. Detectives from the Clearlake Police Department coordinated with Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office Detectives who were familiar with Lugo-Garcia from previous contacts.

Through investigative leads, Lugo-Garcia’s location was determined, and he was taken into custody by Sonoma Sheriff’s Office Detectives. Detectives from the Clearlake Police Department responded to Sonoma County to interview Lugo-Garcia and then transported him to the Lake County Jail.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the family of the child from this tragic event.
The Clearlake Police Department thanks the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in safely locating and arresting Lugo-Garcia.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is encouraged to contact Clearlake Police Det. Leonardo Flores at 707-994-8251.”
