According to authorities, a vehicle pulled up to the intersection and an occupant fired several rounds into the gathering. The victims were said to be related to each other. They were rushed to a hospital by ambulance for care. Police say both victims were expected to survive.

Neighbors were puzzled by the shooting, not knowing why someone would open fire on the family, especially during a gathering to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Rita Guerrero, a nearby neighbor who rushed to help and found the wounded victims, said one of the victims was a young man who had recently graduated high school. Police also say they have no reason to believe the family was targeted.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Modesto Police Department or Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636 where callers can remain anonymous.
