Local News

STOCKTON, Calif. (KTXL) — The Stockton Police Department is investigating a shooting in downtown Stockton that left a 24-year-old man dead.

Officers responded to the area of East Flora and North California streets for reports of a shooting around 12:15 a.m. Thursday, police said. The man died at the scene. 

A woman whose car was damaged during the shooting told FOX40 she heard what sounded like very rapid gunfire around 11 p.m. 

“Luckily, it wasn’t my person, but unfortunately, somebody did lose their life last night,” Amy Horn said. “That’s the sad part — this can be fixed. Their life can’t be brought back.”

There were over a dozen bullet casings near Flora and Sutter streets. At least four cars were damaged, and one Audi was towed for the investigation, police said.

North California Street was closed between East Poplar and East Park streets during the early hours of the investigation. 

“Just looking at the scene, there’s multiple shell casings,” said Officer Joe Silva of the Stockton Police Department. “Lucky, no one else got hurt.”

Police said they do not have any information on the shooter or motive.
