29-year-old Jose Duran Jr. is the indirect victim of domestic violence. He was trying to help his sister move away from her allegedly abusive husband when he was killed by Eric Ordonez.
“The victim’s brother Jose Duran Jr. stepped in between the suspect Eric Ordonez and his sister just as Ordonez was firing the handgun, a round from that handgun struck Duran in the neck,” said Fresno police chief Jerry Dyer.
A highway patrol helicopter spotted Ordonez running from the scene. He was followed to a backyard shed half a mile away and arrested. But police are still looking for the gun.
Eric Ordonez is being held on murder charges. Police say in addition to shooting Jose Duran Jr. He also tried to shoot Duran’s father, but the gun apparently misfired. Police are concerned the gun is still out there and could be found by a child.
