Two men are in custody after an off duty Fresno County Sheriff's Deputy was shot in the back.
Christopher Touchstone and Larry McLaughlin are suspected of shooting Mike Montanez with an air rifle while he was riding his bike on Friant Road.
The shooting happened on Tuesday and the arrests came after an anonymous tip.
Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims said, "The suspects were driving down the road that day and it appears as if they actually did this on a dare or just for fun, that they were going to shoot somebody while they were traveling down that roadway."
The deputy has the pellet lodged in his back but is reported to be in good condition.
