Shooting Injures Child and Man, Kills 19 Year Old

STOCKTON - Police investigated a large crime scene Monday night after a triple shooting that injured a child and claimed the life of a 19 year old.

The incident was reported shortly before 7:30pm near the area of California and Park Streets. Emergency personnel arrived and located three victims. A 19 year old man was located on Sutter and rushed to the hospital where he died. A 5 year old was wounded by a stray bullet and a 28 year old man was also struck by gunfire. They were taken to a hospital and expected to survive.

Detectives closed off several street blocks surrounding the area to examine and gather evidence. Police Spokesman Officer Joseph Silva stressed the importance of witness cooperation, and said there was very little information investigators were working with. A motive was unclear and there was no suspect information available.

“They don’t even deserve to be called suspects,” Silva said. “These are cowards with guns.”

Authorities indicated the child who was struck by gunfire was not an intended target and was only headed to a nearby liquor store with family to purchase items.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Stockton Police Department or Crime Stoppers at (209) 946-0600 where callers can remain anonymous.
