FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -
Two more arrests have been made in connection with a double murder in Fresno County.
Jose Alfredo Jimenez, 51, and his stepson, Michael Ray Pranger, 18, surrendered to detectives on Wednesday, Fresno County sheriff's spokesman Chris Curtice said.
Jose Jimenez's son, Jose Mario Jimenez, 34, was taken into custody in Easton Monday evening.
Investigators say all three were involved in a shooting that left two men dead. It happened Monday afternoon at a home near Cherry and Central avenues, south of Fresno.
Family members have identified the victims as Jimmy Oliver Sr. and his son, Jimmy Oliver Jr.
The weapon believed to have been used in the shooting has been recovered, Curtice said.
Detectives say they are not looking for any other suspects.
During the investigation, deputies found a marijuana grow on
the property, Curtice said. Investigators are looking into whether the grow was a motive in this case.
All three men have been booked into the Fresno County Jail on suspicion of murder.
