Investigators say at around 7 p.m., the suspect and victim were arguing in front of the victim's home. The suspect was in his car during the argument. He then got out of his car and fired several rounds at the victim, hitting him in the chest. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died. A man who was standing near the victim was shot in the foot.
“Quite a distance away from that shooting was an eight-year-old girl walking with her uncle. She was struck in the arm, a good 40-yards from our shooter,” explained Madera Police Chief Steve Frasier.
The young girl was taken to the hospital and is expected to be okay.
Investigators believe the homicide is gang related. No arrests have been made.
