Police search for Hayward man suspected in Fresno State shooting

By Garance Brooks, ASSOCIATED PRESS

Police today arrested a college student suspected of opening fire at an apartment complex near California State University, Fresno, killing one man and wounding two others in a dispute over a video game console.

Jonquel Brooks, 19, of Hayward was taken into custody after a morning of intense phone negotiations with police, his parents and an attorney, said Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer.

“The suspect had altered his appearance significantly,” Dyer said. “He shaved his head and also changed his clothing apparently in an attempt to avoid being recognized.”

Brooks, who was majoring in criminology at Fresno State, was arrested after police and federal agents launched a manhunt for him. Investigators initially believed he was still inside the apartment complex where the shooting occurred, but expanded the search to other parts of Fresno after they determined he had fled.

The incident began when Brooks got into a confrontation with four men over a Sony PlayStation console shortly after 11 p.m. Monday, Dyer said.
