derrick garciaFresno police Chief Jerry Dyer on Friday named Derrick Garcia, 25, as the suspect sought in the high-profile slaying of Imer Alvarado, 34, who was gunned down while dressed as a woman on Belmont Avenue in May of 2017.

The case sparked outrage in the transgender community, many of whom felt the slaying may have been a hate crime.

Police found Alvarado lying in the 3400 block of East Belmont in the early morning hours of May 17, 2017, where the victim had been shot. Dyer said shell casings and video evidence led detectives to Garcia, who remains at large.

Officers discovered the shooting after seven gunshots were reported at the crime scene. Alvarado was identified as a man by the Fresno County Coroner’s Office, based on documents such as a birth certificate and a driver’s license, but Dyer said shortly after the murder that Alvarado appeared to be transgender.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Garcia is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 559-498-7867.
