Authorities Arrest Man Following West Modesto Shooting


MODESTO - Authorities arrested a man on homicide related charges after a shooting Friday afternoon on Vernon Avenue.

Shortly before 3:00pm, deputies with the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Office responded to a home on the 1700 block of Vernon where they found a man down in the driveway who had been shot. The victim, identified only as a 47 year old man, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Deputies detained 48 year old Joey Hardy at the scene during the investigation. After interviewing witnesses, detectives learned that an argument took place at the home before the shooting happened.

Hardy was transported to the Sheriff's Office and later booked into the Stanislaus County Jail. Detectives are working to establish the relationship between him and the victim.

Authorities are encouraging anyone with information regarding this case to contact Detective Brown at (209) 567-4485, or Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636 where callers can remain anonymous.
