HANFORD — After reportedly shooting at a group of people in Central Hanford, an accused gang member turned himself into his parole officer.

Police have been looking for 20-year-old Dupri Reed since Sunday, when he got into an argument with a woman and later came back with a handgun.

The shooting happened around 7:30 p.m. at an apartment complex on Parker Place. Investigators say Reed fired several rounds at a group clustered on the front lawn, but did not hit anyone.

Among the victims were several small children, police said.

Reed fled the scene and went into hiding. Hanford police, assisted by the Hanford Parole Office and the Kings County Gang Task Force, began a three-day hunt to track him down, officials said. They searched several homes looking for the 20-year-old, but could not locate him.

On Wednesday, Reed walked into the Hanford Parole Office and turned himself in. He was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, shooting at an inhabited dwelling and participating in a criminal street gang.

He remains in custody at the county jail on $800,000 bail.
