One man was shot to death and another man was injured during an incident in Fontana on May 24, and a suspect has been arrested in connection with the case, according to the Fontana Police Department.

At about 2:06 p.m., police received reports of two men shot inside a residence in the 7700 block of Juniper Avenue. Officers arrived and located both victims suffering from gunshot wounds. Paramedics transported the victims to area hospitals, where one of the victims died.

Detectives were summoned to the location and it was determined the shooting was allegedly related to an earlier argument with Alberto Torres, a 37-year-old Fontana resident, at the location. The investigation is ongoing, and detectives have been trying to determine the relationship between the victims and Torres.

Later that evening, officers from Fontana P.D.'s Multiple Enforcement Team, Fugitive Apprehension Team and the Investigations Unit tracked Torres to the City of San Bernardino. A traffic stop was conducted on the Interstate 215 Freeway and Torres was arrested without incident.

Torres was booked into the West Valley Detention Center on a charge of homicide.

The deceased victim was described as a 28-year-old Fontana man who suffered gunshots to his upper body. The other victim was described as a 50-year-old Fontana man who suffered gunshots to his hand and upper body and is expected to survive his injuries.
