Death – Fresno Police make arrest in March homicide investigation

Death – Obituary

FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — Police have arrested a man they say is responsible for the March death of a Fresno man.

On Monday, members of the Fresno Police Department’s Street Violence Bureau Tactical Team and officers from M.A.G.E.C. located Eleuterio Flores, 18. Flores was identified by detectives as the suspect in the murder of another 18-year-old Fresno man.

When officers attempted to contact Flores, they say he discarded a gun and attempted to run from police. Officers say he was immediately taken into custody and his firearm recovered.

Around 4:16 p.m. on March 21, Fresno Police received a call for service at the intersection of Fresno Street and McKenzie Avenue. The paramedic crew told police they were parked on McKenzie, just west of Fresno Street, when they were approached by a vehicle with three people in it.

One of the occupants told paramedics that one of their friends had been shot. Paramedics found Julian Cerda, 18 of Fresno, inside the vehicle with gunshot wounds to his upper torso. He was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police believe the incident started at Maple and Shields at a Valero gas station, where the people in the vehicle were getting gas. While they were at the convenience store paying for the gas, there was an altercation with an occupant of a white pickup truck. Police believe there was an exchange of gunfire, and Cerda was struck in his upper torso.

Investigators say Flores is “a member of a criminal street gang.” He will face charges of murder and illegal possession of a firearm.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
