Six Gang Members Arrested In Fresno Football Watch Party Shooting That Left 4 Dead

Six suspected gang members have been arrested in connection with a shooting that left four people dead at a football watch party at a Fresno.

The suspects allegedly carried out the November 17 shooting at the outdoor party they believed was attended by members of a rival gang behind the death of one suspect’s brother hours earlier.

The suspects are connected with the Mongolian Boys Society gang. They believed the football watch party involved members of the rival Asian gangs, though investigators identified only one person at the event as being formerly associated with the Asian gangs.

An Asian gang task force was formed to investigate the shooting. Fresno police later served 19 search warrants in the case, recovering 13 firearms, including weapons used in the backyard shooting, Hall said

The six suspects face charges of homicide, attempted homicide as well as intrigue to commit murder and gang- and firearms-related counts, officials said. They are being held on $11 million bail each, Hall said.

Hall identified the suspects as Billy Xiong, 25; Anthony Montes, 27; Porge Kue, 26; Johnny Xiong, 25; Pao Vang, 30; and Jhovanny Delgao, 19.

Another man, Sia Vang, 23, is being investigated as a person of interest in the case, Hall said.

A group of family and friends had gathered in a Fresno backyard November 17 to watch a football game when gunmen sneaked into the yard and began shooting, killing four young men and wounding six others, police said.

About 30 people, including several children who were inside the home, were attending the party when the suspects began shooting into the crowd.

About 16 partygoers, all of them men, were in the backyard watching the Sunday Night Football game when the gunfire erupted.

Three people were proclaimed dead at the scene, and a 40-year-old was taken to a hospital, where he died in surgery, police said.

The men who were killed were identified as Xy Lee, 23; Phia Vang, 31; Kou Xiong, 38, who lived at the house; and Kalaxang Thao, 40.

Five additional victims between the ages of 28 and 36 were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, officials said. Another man was taken to a different hospital, where he was treated for a graze wound.

The area is described as a 10-block southeast Fresno neighborhood that is home to many Latino and Southeast Asian, particularly Hmong, residents.
