STOCKTON — Police are investigating a deadly shooting in south Stockton.
The shooting happened Tuesday on Colfax Court, in a neighborhood between Pock Lane and Highway 99, around 11:20 a.m.
Police say an 18-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.
When the teen’s mother and grandmother arrived at the court, they weren’t allowed to cross the yellow crime scene tape and reach their loved one.
The mother was also frustrated that her other son, who’s 14, was already escorted away by detectives for questioning.
“If someone was out here and saw something, we are definitely going to interview them because there are family members here at the scene and they deserve answers,” said Joe Silva with the Stockton Police Department.
The victim’s father, who was already present in the area closed off by police, eventually walked out to his weeping mother.
It was not immediately known what led to the shooting or if police have a suspect. Police say no neighbors are in danger.
