Following last month’s fatal shootings of six people, including a teenage mother and her child, that investigators think were the result of a gang dispute, authorities in central California revealed the arrests of more than two dozen individuals as part of a gang crackdown.
The Tulare County Sheriff’s Office reported on Saturday that 26 people were detained on different charges following a four-day investigation by several law enforcement agencies. According to authorities, 97 residences and 23 prison cells were searched.
After the sheriff’s office detained two suspects in the Jan. 16 killings at a house in rural Goshen, a town of about 3,000 people in the agricultural San Joaquin Valley, the crackdown got under way in early February.
