A man suspected in a fatal hit-in-run in northwest Fresno in which the victim’s body was dragged more than 8 miles was in critical condition after jumping from a three-story house in Bass Lake while deputies tried to arrest him, authorities said.

In addition, the Fresno County Sheriff-Coroner’s Office identified the victim Saturday as Monique Contreraz, 29, a homeless woman from Fresno.

Fresno Police Lt. Brian Valles told The Fresno Bee that 38-year-old Shawn Ginder was arrested by the Madera County Sheriff’s Office late Friday. Grinder was taken to a hospital where he was listed in critical condition, authorities said.

The Fresno Police Department said in a social media post that the suspect the hit-and-run was in the custody of the Madera County Sheriff’s Office but gave no information. A dispatcher at the Sheriff’s Office referred all questions to the Fresno Police Department, which didn’t immediately answer messages seeking comment Saturday.

Struck at Herndon and Milburn

The victim in the hit-and-run was a 29-year-old woman who was pushing a shopping cart and had her dog on a leash when she was hit by a silver pickup truck at the intersection of Herndon and Millburn avenues in Fresno, police said. The driver of the truck didn’t stop and dragged the woman’s body several miles to a hotel parking lot.

At the hotel, the driver parked the truck, got out, and went to the lobby to ask for a room, Fresno police said Friday. When the man was told there was no vacancy, he left and was pulling back in his truck when another hotel guest saw the woman’s partial remains dislodge from under the pickup truck and called police.

Hours after the woman was found dead, officers located Ginder’s heavily damaged pickup truck at an apartment complex in Fresno where Ginder lives, Valles said. Later Friday, deputies with the Madera County Sheriff’s Office found Ginder at the home in Bass Lake.
