Fresno Man Suspected Of Firing Shotgun At Home, Leads Deputies On Car Chase

A Fresno man was arrested Saturday night after firing several shotgun blasts at a west Fresno County home and then leading deputies on a pursuit, the Fresno County Sheriff's Office said.

After receiving a call about shots being fired at a home in the 3000 block of N. Dickenson Avenue, Deputies say they were led on a high-speed chase by 19-year-old Jose Galindo Gonzalez who was spotted inside of a white Cadillac shortly after 11 p.m.

The car chase lasted for almost 12 minutes with speeds reaching 90 mph, a Fresno County Sheriff's Office spokesman said. California Highway Patrol and a CHP helicopter assisted in the chase.

The car chase ended when the Gonzalez pulled into an apartment complex near McKinley and Marks avenues.

Gonzalez was found to be intoxicated, deputies said.

Deputies found a shotgun with the words, "down for whatever," etched on it on the ground where Gonzalez had been parked.

Gonzalez was later booked into the Fresno County Jail on charges of shooting at an inhabited dwelling, felony evading and driving under the influence.
