Madera County Sheriff John Anderson announced Friday that two suspects have been arrested following a Fairmead shooting last weekend that left one man dead and two other injured.

Late Thursday night, the Madera County Sheriff's Department arrested 23-year-old Antonio Michael Ybarra and 20-year-old Jose Pulido-Perez in Chowchilla. Both men are accused of firing their weapons at a party, shortly after midnight on Saturday morning, killing 19-year-old Eleazar Iruegas of Madera, and injuring two others.

Detectives said more than 100 people were at the party when the two suspects opened fire.

Pulido-Perez and Ybarra are in custody with bail set at $1-million. Authorities are still investigating a motive for the shooting.
