Detectives Arrest Three Gang Members for Attempted Murder

Homicide detectives with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office have arrested three men for shooting and injuring a man in San Joaquin. 20 year old Kevin Rosales of Huron, 19 year old Luis Bravo-Edwardo of Huron and 19 year old Esekuiel Ochoa-Felix of Coalinga have been booked into the Fresno County Jail. All three face charges of attempted murder and participating in a criminal street gang. Rosales also faces a charge of carrying a loaded weapon and probation violation. Rosales’ bail is set at $90,000, Bravo-Edwardo’s is $80,000 and Ochoa-Felix’s is $80,000.

Around 8:45 pm on Thursday, May 28th, a drive-by shooting occurred. This shooting injured a 22 year old man who was standing in the area of Nevada and 6th Street in the City of San Joaquin. He was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Homicide detectives, patrol deputies and members of MAGEC (Multi-Agency Gang Enforcement Consortium) worked together on this investigation to develop leads. On Friday, these law enforcement officers served search warrants at locations connected to the three suspects in this case, which ultimately lead to their arrests on Saturday.

It has been an unsettling, violent past week in the City of San Joaquin. The Sheriff’s Office hopes the arrests of these three men, along with the 17 year old killer responsible for a gang-related homicide on May 26th, will deliver a sense of relief to citizens by knowing everyone responsible is now in custody.
