A gang member is accused of stabbing a homeless man to death for “no apparent reason,” police said.
Now, the suspect is behind bars and facing murder charges.
On Dec. 18, police in Fresno., California, responded to a man lying on the ground with blood around him. The man was found by members of a homeless outreach community, according to Fresno police.
The victim — identified as Angel Cortez Flores — had multiple stab wounds. He was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to Fresno police.
Flores was homeless and had his camp set up near where he was found dead.
Investigators got surveillance video and saw that Flores was attacked by a suspect, according to police. The suspect was identified as Jesse Gonzalez, 33, a member of the Savage Assassins Motorcycle Club and Bulldog gang member.
Police said Gonzalez attacked Flores for “no apparent reason,” then fled to Yuba City, California, police said.
Investigators arrested Gonzalez on a murder warrant on Jan. 6. He is currently in jail and waiting to be extradited to Fresno.
