FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A man was arrested after he led deputies on a short chase in northwest Fresno on Monday morning.

Fresno County sheriff's deputies pulled over Shun Trayon Hill, 37, on Gettysburg and Thorne Avenues just after midnight.

Hill sped away from the deputies as they approached his vehicle.

Authorities followed him until he stopped again on Gettysburg and Teilman, where he ran away from the vehicle. Deputies say they could see him jumping over fences to get from yard to yard.

"We were able to utilize several officers from the police department and the sheriff's office to set up a perimeter quickly," said Sgt. Edward Mayo. "We had our air support in the air, we had a drone to help with the search and help identify where the subject might be, and that's when we located him."

Officials say they found Hill in the backyard of one of the homes.

Shun Trayon Hill was parole for a prior charge of voluntary manslaughter at the time of his arrest.

He now faces four felony charges and three misdemeanors for driving drunk, firearms possession and fleeing from an officer.
