Madera PD responds to assault at MHS

Madera School Resource Officers responded to an assault that occurred on Madera High School campus.

This was an isolated and non-life-threatening incident, which occurred on Thursday. All parties involved are familiar with each other and this was not a random act. The involved parties were all contacted on scene and their parents were also notified of the incident.

“We would like MHS parents and the public to know only one victim was assaulted in this case and the suspect is in custody,” said a statement released by the Madera Police Department. “Furthermore, the incident was not gang/drug related and did not interfere with the regular school schedule. We would like to thank the concerned citizens of Madera for your calls regarding this incident and for your understanding that the limited information provided is because the involved parties are minors.”

2 arrested following North Fork shooting

The Madera County Sheriff’s Communications Center received a call for service regarding some type of verbal disturbance. While on the line with the reporting party, dispatchers heard what they believed to be the sound of a gun shot.

Shortly after, MCSO Deputies arrived at a residence in the 33000 block of Peckinpah Acres Drive in North Fork where the call originated from on Saturday at about 8 p.m., deputies contacted Keanu Alfieri and Chance Moody, but were unable to locate a victim at that location.

Nearby, in a wooded area surrounding the property, deputies made contact with an adult male suffering from non-life threatening gun shot wounds. The victim was evaluated and transported via life flight to a regional medical facility for treatment.

The Madera County Sheriff’s Investigations Unit responded to the residence to investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting incident. After processing the scene and taking statements, Alfieri (30, North Fork) was arrested for Attempted Murder and Moody (44, Oakhurst) was arrested for Accessory. Both subjects were transported and booked into the Madera County Jail without incident.

“I applaud the diligent work of our entire team during the course of this incident,” Sheriff Tyson Pogue said. “The quick actions of our dispatchers allowed deputies to arrive quickly on scene, which facilitated a prompt investigation supported by detectives. I thank each of them for their dedication as they worked through the night to bring a resolution to this case.”
