STOCKTON —

A Stockton mother was shot in a drive-by shooting while sleeping with her 2-year-old daughter in a home on Percival Way around midnight Monday.

Dozens of bullet holes punctured through the window of a house on Percival Way.

That home belongs to Champ Teck who, at the time of the shooting, was home with his wife, daughter-in-law, and his 2-year-old granddaughter.

“Totally ridiculous and uncalled for — it’s senseless,” Champ Teck told FOX40 Monday afternoon.

Hours later, he’s still trying to make sense of what happened. Bullet holes not only outside, but inside the house, too. And even more terrifying for Teck, at least one of those bullets hit his daughter-in-law in the shoulder.

“And I came to see outside to see what was going on and my house was a mess and my daughter-in-law was on the ground,” he said.

The victim was in bed with her toddler when the drive-by shooting happened, according to investigators.

The woman was injured but her little girl was untouched.

“I woke up towards the very end. I heard like seven or 10 gunshots,” a neighbor who asked that we hide his identity said. “Loud booms, and I didn’t know what it was ’til I heard the police sirens come in, and I figured they were gunshots.”

The house remained still in the Stockton daylight, the bullet holes are hard to hide, but for Teck, the reason behind the violence is still unclear.

“It’s senseless, I don’t know what could have provoked this,” Teck said.

Investigators have said they are looking for a tan Acura and a black Honda Civic that sped away after the shooting.
