UPDATE – Suspect Arrested in Homicide Investigation

Torres

On Sunday, 05/24/20 at approximately 2:06 pm, Fontana PD received reports of two males shot inside a residence in the 7700 block of Juniper Avenue.  Officers arrived and located both victims suffering from gunshots.  Paramedics transported the victims to area hospitals where one of the victims died.  Detectives were summoned to the location and it was determined the shooting was related to an earlier argument with Alberto Torres (37) of Fontana at the location. The investigation is on-going, and detectives are trying to determine the relationship between the victims and Torres. 

Later that evening, officers from Fontana PD’s Multiple Enforcement Team, Fugitive Apprehension Team and the Investigations Unit tracked Torres to the City of San Bernardino.  A traffic stop was conducted on the 215 freeway and Torres was arrested without incident.  Torres was booked into the West Valley Detention Center for homicide.  Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact Detective Campa dcampa@fontana.org.

Victim #1: 50-year-old male, Fontana resident, gunshots to the hand and upper body and expected to survive his injuries
