A 26-year-old Turlock man is being held without bail after being arrested Wednesday on charges including attempted murder from a drive-by shooting in March.
Turlock police arrested Gabriel Martinez on suspicion of attempted murder, being a felon in possession of methamphetamine and carrying a concealed loaded firearm in a vehicle, as well as parole violation.
About 5:55 p.m. March 30, officers were dispatched to a call of shots fired in the 100 block of Almond Avenue. The call quickly elevated to a report that a man had been shot.
Officers arrived to find the victim suffering life-threatening gunshot wounds. The 25-year-old man was sitting alone in his vehicle and had been struck three times, said Turlock Police Department spokesman Sgt. Stephen Webb. The suspect had driven by, fired the shots and fled. The victim was hospitalized in stable condition.
