Modesto Police caught up with a suspected gang member Thursday, who was wanted for attempted murder.

Thursday, when officers spotted him, he took off and left a loaded pistol inside his vehicle.

After a brief pursuit, a Modesto Police Canine Unit cornered Parra and took him into custody.

Parra has been booked at the Stanislaus County Jail for attempted murder, and for being a gang member in possession of a loaded firearm.
