FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – Detectives have announced the arrest of a man in connection to a fatal shooting that left one dead in December on Thursday, according to Fresno Police Department officials.

On Dec, 26 around 11:25 p.m., police responded to the area of Hedges and Rabe avenues for reports of a man lying unresponsive in the intersection.

When officers arrived on scene, they located Adam Contreras, 24 of Fresno, suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper body. According to police, Contreras was pronounced dead on scene due to his injuries.
