A member of California-based Conjunto group Los Hooligans was murdered and another is hospitalized in critical condition after they were involved in a shooting on Sunday afternoon.
KFSN-TV in Fresno, California reports an altercation happened around 4:30 pm at El Rancho Market in Parlier, California between three men. One of them fired multiple times at the other two. The Fresno County Sherriff’s Department says the motive for the shooting is unclear at this time and the suspect remains at large.
“The two men went down fairly quickly, and the person responsible fled the scene,” said Tony Botti, spokesperson for the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office. “It appears that our two victims were targeted. There are no gang ties to this case whatsoever.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.
Los Hooligans are a family Conjunto band based in Fresno, California. The group released their debut album in 2011 and were set to release a new album this summer with another one in the works.
The 57-year-old father and 33-year-old son were very close, according to an interview with Tejano Nation. “My dad is my best friend, and it brings us even closer sharing the same passion for Conjunto music,” said Izzy Treviño III. “It’s truly a beautiful feeling being able to share the stage with my father like he did with his, and I will do the same with my son. I’ve seen and played with a lot of different bass players over the years, but my pops is still my favorite. We know each other’s style, so our groove is always solid.”
