Shooting Suspect Arrested by Modesto Police

Sponsored by:

The Modesto Police Gang Unit arrested a 16-year-old alleged gang member last night, for his role in a pair of separate drive by shootings.

Officials say the suspect admitted to two of the shootings that have occurred in the past month when he was detained by officers while walking with two other subjects in the neighborhood.

A Sergeant with the Modesto Gang Unit says the arrest shows suspects are never anonymous, and with community assistance, can be quickly identified and captured.

The investigation is continuing, and anyone with additional information on the shootings is urged to contact Modesto Police.
