Fresno police say that Kelon Hennessy White, 28, turned himself in Thursday in connection with a homicide committed Sunday on West Clinton Avenue.
White’s decision to surrender came three days after police identified him as the prime suspect in the shooting death of Silvano Villa-Fierro, 46, inside an apartment.
Officers and EMS personnel performed life-saving efforts on Villa-Fierro, who was taken to Community Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
According to police, White and Villa-Fierro got into a fight inside the apartment before White killed him with a single shot and fled.
White showed up Thursday at the Fresno County Jail, where he was interviewed by homicide detectives and booked on murder and weapons charges, according to a Fresno Police Department news release.
