Police detain student on suspicion of shooting

Police arrested a college student on suspicion of opening fire at an apartment during a dispute over a video game console, killing one man and wounding two others.

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

Police said the shooting across a street from the California State University, Fresno, stadium broke out during a confrontation with four men over a Playstation game console late Monday.

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 then expanded the search to other parts of Fresno.

"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."

The Fresno County Coroner's Office identified the deceased victim as a Brant Daniels, 19, who had moved from the Los Angeles area to attend Fresno State but was not a current student.

Police identified the two wounded men as Fresno State student Roderick Buycks, 19, and Drew Pfeiff, 22, who is not enrolled at the university.

Fresno State students were never in danger because police were in contact with the gunman and knew he was not on campus, Dyer said.

Police were searching for evidence, including the gun, at six apartments at University Village Apartments.
