Third victim found in Jeep is rushed to Fresno hospital.

Three men were shot late Sunday night near an orchard at the northwest edge of Clovis.

Two were dead at the scene; the third was rushed to Saint Agnes Medical Center in Fresno in very critical condition [where he died] Clovis police spokeswoman Calli Biaggi said.

All three victims were found about 10:30 p.m. in a Jeep Cherokee that was parked about 400 feet east of Willow Avenue on the shoulder of Shepherd Avenue. The area is rural, but quickly becoming urban as new housing developments have sprung up nearby...

If hispanic murderers on the lam were a commodity we'd have trade parity with Mexico.

Basically, I give anyone who finds me in Clovis the permission to shoot me as soon as possible. I'm already in hell. It can't get much worse than that.

This took place near where they might be working and far from where they might be living. Does that make it less likely to be gangs or drugs? I don't know.

I live here and I don't even know. That area is a really nice area of town, and it's a construction site, not usually what one thinks of (at least here) when they're thinking of a gang issue. That's a bit further in town, more in Fresno, especially for something like this. I'm curious as to what they will find when they dig into it a bit deeper.

Maybe the Clovis Police will dig deeper, but I don't think that the Fresno Bee will be reporting much. That they put a triple murder in Clovis on the Metro section instead of the front page indicates this story is destined for the proverbial Memory Hole. It doesn't comport with the sunny view the Bee likes to portray of the rich ethnic diversity that daily enhances our lives in the Central Valley.

Not much new here, but for what it's worth...

Three Killed in Clovis Shooting
May 23, 2005

Three were killed in a Clovis construction zone last night and the hunt is on for the suspect and the truck the shooter was driving.

What's unusual about the crime scene is that the area is closed off for construction. It's surrounded by orchards and unfinished housing developments, so it's not known why anybody was even there in the first place.

Clovis homicide detectives and the crime scene unit are looking for answers after three people were shot and killed late last night.

It happened around 10:30pm last night in a secluded area on Shepherd near Willow.

Police say someone shot at four men in a red Jeep Cherokee. Two died at the scene, one later died at the hospital.

The fourth man managed to escape to a nearby housing development to get help. He pounded on doors and neighbors called police.

Detectives have been talking to the survivor, but at this point, they don't know why the men were shot.

Police say the gunman was driving a black Ford F-150 Harley Davidson Edition pickup truck. It may have had tinted windows.

The upshot of this is that the 27 Mexicans we've managed to collect on death row in California may soon receive a "get out of death free" card because they weren't given access to the Mexican Consulate prior to their prosecution.

Four guys in probably an old Jeep Cherokee, that makes sense. The shooter in an expensive truck doesn't fit as well. Maybe the guy that hired them figured it would be cheaper to shoot them than pay them.

From the local Fox Affiliate we learn that the men were bound and executed, and from the CBS Affiliate that the victims were indeed Hispanic.

Three People Found Murdered Near Clovis Construction Site
KMPH News Team

Police answered a 911 call of shots fired near a Clovis construction site, near Shepard and Willow.

Sources say the three bodies were found in a car, bound with duct tape and shot “execution style” in the head.

A fourth individual claimed to have escaped from the gunman and is being questioned by authorities.

Police are looking for a black Harley Davidson model Ford pick-up with tinted windows that was seen leaving the scene.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Clovis police.

It's like pulling teeth to get the news media to cut loose with pertinent information. Any description of the suspect yet, other than black hair and brown eyes, that is?

"??...I'm not up on new trucks. What is that?"

In short, a waste of money.... it's a pick-up truck that has the load carrying capacity of a station wagon....and you get to pay about $8000.00 more for it because it has some HD decals and embroidery.

It makes as much sense as HD beer, or HD soap.

To each his / her own.

The Fresno Bee, to their credit, has an extensive and informative front page story this morning:

Arrest in triple killing Man held, woman questioned after three shot execution-style in Clovis.

They still won't name the man they arrested. Well, the pot thickens.

... three men were shot execution-style in an established Fresno neighborhood where police believe the victims' wrists were bound with duct-tape and zip ties...

[At the Edgewater Motel in Reedley] officers arrested the man on suspicion of three counts of murder and detained the woman for questioning,

... police not release the names of the woman or the suspect and said they were searching for as many as two additional suspects.

Family members identified two of the victims as brothers Rafael Moreno, 32, of Kerman, and Eracleo Moreno, 26, of Los Angeles. The men have other family members living in the state of Washington and in Michoacan in Mexico.

A relative... said Eracleo Moreno worked in construction in Los Angeles and regularly sent money home to family in Mexico. She didn't know who the third victim might have been.

That opinion doesn't appear to agree with your site.

In an unsigned decision, justices dismissed as premature the case of Jose Medellin, who argued he was entitled to a federal court hearing on whether his rights were violated when a Texas court tried and sentenced him to death in 1994 ... The court cited a last-minute maneuver by President Bush ordering state courts to revisit the issue, making Supreme Court intervention unnecessary at this time. It reserved the right to hear the appeal again once the case had run its full course in state court.

haha waste of money is right, but then I'm of the opinion that any of the "fill-in-the-blank editions" of any of the pickups, minivans or suv's are all a waste of money. Awhile back there were Eddie Bauer editions of the ford explorer and the minivan that ford came out w/ as well. The Harley Davidson edition is expensive and well...rather ghetto if you ask me. Again..just my opinion.
