LODI — The Lodi Police Department is investigating a shooting that left a man dead Wednesday night.

He was transported to a nearby hospital where he was in critical condition. Police said the man died from his injuries the following evening.
Family members identified the victim as Rafael Morfin. Morfin is survived by his four children, his brother told FOX40.

“I work a swing shift so I was coming home, probably about 12-1 in the morning or whatever, and there was police everywhere and it was tapped off and stuff,” a neighbor who wished to remain anonymous said. “I don’t like it. I don’t know what it’s about. I hope they get the guy.”
