Carson City man arrested in Yuba City shooting
A Carson City man has been arrested in connection with a California drive-by shooting.
Francisco “Cisco” Fernandez, 34, was arrested Wednesday around 8 p.m. after deputies initiated a traffic stop near the 4600 block of Highway 50. Fernandez was arrested on suspicion of felony fugitive from justice after deputies discovered the man had a warrant for his arrest in Yuba City, Calif., for attempted murder.
The shooting happened Sept. 14 at 8:21 p.m. after the Yuba City Police Department responded to reports of shots fired. There, officers found an adult male motorcyclist lying on the road, officials with Yuba City PD said.
Last week The Carson City Sheriff’s Office and Yuba City Police Department executed search warrants on two residences and a business in Carson City and Yuba City, Calif., Sept. 25 to attempt to locate evidence in a drive-by shooting that occurred in Yuba City.
The shooting may possibly be linked to the Hells Angels motorcycle gang.
Sheriff Ken Furlong said they had obtained the evidence they were looking for during the warrant execution, however declined to comment on what those items were. At the time of the execution, no arrest warrant had been filed for Fernandez.
Fernandez owns property both in Yuba City and Carson City as well as a business in Carson. The search warrant on Sept. 25 was executed at the Tanglewood Village apartments and the Highway 50 Nautical Motorcycles shop.
Bail for Fernandez was set at $500,000.
