Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

Two gang members have bee arrested in connection to a shooting that wounded a 50-year-old man outside of a convenience store, the Fresno Police Department said.

Police arrested Andrew Alquinzon, 18, and a 16-year-old male at their homes on April 1. Police said they found evidence, including a sawed-off .22-caliber rifle, linking the two to the March 21 shooting of the 50-year-old man. 

Alquinzon and the 16-year-old were part of a group of people who confronted the 50-year-old man and four other men outside of a store in the area of Barton and Nevada avenues, police said.

The group of males attempted to take beer that the 50-year-old man had just purchased. The 50-year-old man refused and began to run. That's when police say Alquinzon and the 16-year-old juvenile shot at the man, hitting him in the foot and the buttocks.

The 50-year-old man was transported to Community Regional Medical Center where he was treated and released.

Alquinzon was booked into Fresno County Jail and the 16 year old was booked into the Fresno County Juvenile Justice Campus for assault with a deadly weapon and gang enhancements.
