Police have arrested two people in connection to the Monday morning shooting in Lodi that left a 27-year-old man dead.
Stockton police said they made a traffic stop Monday afternoon. During the stop, one of the occupants fled on foot and tried to discard a gun. Another gun was found inside the vehicle.
Stockton officers were able to detain the suspect who fled and the other occupants of the vehicle.
Lodi police detectives responded to the scene and were able to link evidence gathered at the traffic stop with the homicide investigation from East Oak Street.
When officers arrived to the scene Monday morning, they found a 27-year-old man sitting in a truck suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The man, who a family member identified as Louis DeLatorre, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Edgar Corrales, 20, of Sacramento, and a 16-year-old boy from Lodi were arrested. They are both being booked on suspicion of murder with gang enhancements.
Police said both suspects are affiliated with local street gangs.
