LODI — Two men were arrested late Saturday night in connection to a deadly shooting in a restaurant parking lot in Lodi.
According to the Lodi Police Department, officers were dispatched just before midnight Saturday to the In-N-Out Burger parking lot on W. Kettleman Lane for a report of a shooting. When officers arrived on scene, they found a 19-year-old man with a gunshot wound. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died.
