Stockton Police Investigate Early Morning Shooting that Killed 60-Year-Old

STOCKTON -- The Stockton Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred in the early morning hours Saturday and resulted in the death of a 60-year-old man.

Around 1:36 a.m. officers arrived at Hackberry Street off of E Street after receiving a call about a person who had been shot in the area.

A 60-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound. He was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

Neighbors in the area told FOX40 they heard a noise from across the street. The neighborhood itself is generally quiet, they said.

They also used to see the man frequently and said he was a taxi driver.

The police department does not have a motive or a suspect at this time. They have not released the name of the victim.

"[Our investigators] wanna bring closure to this victim's family and we wanna apprehend the suspect or suspects who may have done this," said Joe Silva with the Stockton Police Department. "We wanna get them off the streets before they can do this to anybody else."

Stockton officials are asking that anyone with information call them at 209-937-8377 or call Crime Stoppers at 209-946-0600.
