Toddler Shot, Police Investigating How and Why

MODESTO–

Police are investigating how a toddler was shot in Modesto early Sunday afternoon.

Authorities have set up shop along Stone Leaf Court, but this is just one of many crime scenes police look to be investigating.

The toddler was taken to the hospital privately. Once at the hospital, the circumstances surrounding why the toddler was shot aroused the suspicion of police.

The family said the toddler was shot during a drive-by shooting. But, police have said that is not the case, with neighbors along Stone Leaf Court not reporting hearing any shots fired.

Police say that the toddler is expected to be OK. The toddler was airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Oakland.

Someone is reportedly detained, but police say that person has not been arrested.
