Woman killed in Northwest Fresno hit-and-run identified

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — DISCLAIMER: Some details of this story may disturb some readers.

Authorities have identified the woman who was killed Friday in a horrific hit-and-run in northwest Fresno.

Monique Contreraz, 29, was pushing a shopping cart and walking her dog on a leash at the intersection of Herndon and Milburn when she was hit by the van of Shawn Ginder, 38, police said.

Ginder reportedly continued driving as Contreraz got stuck under the truck.

She was dragged eight miles until the suspect left her in the parking lot of the La Quinta Inn.

Authorities launched a manhunt, which spanned across county lines.

On Friday afternoon, authorities found the van at an apartment complex near the Fig Garden Loop.

This helped them find Ginder and connect him to an address in Madera County.

Police said as they prepared to tell Ginder to get out of the Madera County home, he jumped out of a third-story window and suffered serious injuries.

He is now listed in extremely critical condition at the Community Regional Medical Center.

Once he receives treatment, he will be incarcerated in the Fresno County Jail.

Authorities say Contreraz was homeless.
