Suspect Arrested For Deadly Shooting In Chowchilla

CHOWCHILLA, Calif. (KMJ/KFSN) — A suspect has been arrested in connection to a shooting that left a man dead and a woman injured last week in Chowchilla.

The shooting happened Tuesday afternoon on Riverside Avenue near Ninth Street.

Chowchilla police say 20-year-old Nathan Gonzales had gotten into an argument with 25-year-old Jose Rodriguez in front of a home.

At some point, officials say Gonzales pulled out a gun and shot Rodriguez and his wife.

Rodriguez was rushed to a local hospital, where he later died.

His wife was also taken to the hospital and is expected to survive her injuries.

Hours after the shooting, police began serving search warrants at several homes, which they then spent days surveilling.

A week later, police say they found Gonzales at one of the homes they had been watching in Madera.

Gonzales was arrested and booked into jail on charges of murder and attempted murder on Tuesday night.
