Three Men Arrested After Authorities See Gunfire


Guns found by authorities.


Three men were arrested in Stockton early Tuesday evening after officers on patrol saw some gunfire.

Police say that around 6:20, Community Response Team officers and U.S. Marshals were doing some surveillance when some gunfire erupted from a nearby car.

The officers sent out a description and other officers spotted a similar-looking car near Kelley Drive and Beaufort Avenue a short time later.

As officers approached the suspects, one man – 26-year-old Michael Latin – tried run, dropping a handgun in the process. He was soon arrested.

Another man, 21-year-old Joshua Williams, showed up at the scene and tried to go inside a home. But, police stopped him and then entered the home themselves, where they found more weapons and some drugs.

In total, authorities found a duffel bag with an assault weapon (which looked to have been thrown out of a bedroom window), a reportedly stolen handgun, a bullet proof vest, and some methamphetamine pills.

William Davis, a 22-year-old man, was also arrested. All three men face weapons charges. Both Williams and Davis also face narcotics charges, while Latin also faces resisting arrest.
