Police in Turlock have arrested two men in connection to the shooting death of a 21-year-old Modesto resident.

Dispatchers had gotten multiple calls about shots being fired near E. Main Street and Lyons Avenue around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. CHP had also told Turlock Police that a man had called 911 to report that he was being shot at by someone in a car heading south at Highway 99 near Taylor Road.

Once officers showed up at the scene, a 21-year-old man – identified as Amritpal Sandhu – was found shot to death. His body was sitting in the driver’s seat of a white sedan, Turlock Police say.

Thursday, Ceres Police investigators arrested 21-year-old Turlock resident Pardeep Singh for murder and other weapons charges. Kultar Singh Dhatt, a 22-year-old Turlock resident, was also arrested for murder charges.

Both Singh and Dhatt have been booked at Stanislaus County Jail.

Investigators are still looking for clues in the incident. Anyone with further information is asked to call Detective Timothy Redd at (209) 668-5550.
