15-Year-Old Killed, 13-Year-Old Injured in Stockton Shooting

STOCKTON -- The Stockton Police Department is investigating a fatal shooting that left a teen dead.

Family says the 13-year-old and his friend, 15-year-old Alero Ployngam, noticed a dark car following them down West Lane in Stockton around 10 p.m. They got nervous and tried to get home to safety.

From within the car, an unknown suspect began shooting at the two boys.

Ployngam was pronounced dead just a few feet from his friend's front door.

The 13-year-old was transported to a nearby hospital after sustaining non-life threatening injuries when he was shot in the leg.

"Any time you have a homicide, that's tragic," said Joe Silva with the Stockton Police Department. "But once you have 13-year-old or 15-year-old boys getting shot and killed, that's concerning to us as a police department."

At this time there is no motive or suspect description.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Stockton Police Department at (209) 937-8377.
