STOCKTON - A documented gang member and two women near him were injured during a shooting Wednesday afternoon in central Stockton, according to police.
The male victim, whose identity was not released, was one of three people hospitalized after the 2:40 p.m. attack on California Street between Arcade Street and Monterey Avenue. None of the injuries are severe, and no suspects have been identified, police said.
Stockton police briefly closed a section of California Street as evidence technicians combed the scene for shell casings.
A Jaguar sedan was hit by multiple gunshots, and more than 10 shell casings were in the parking lot next to Alpine Market, said Officer Joe Silva, a spokesman for the Stockton Police Department. In keeping with department policy, authorities are not disclosing the specific gang the man belongs to.
Another young woman, who lives in an apartment across the street from the market, was also injured when bits of glass flew in her eyes as a bullet pierced her window and embedded in her living room wall.
The victim, who did not give her name for fear of reprisal, said she heard several gunshots but did not see anything because her vision was temporarily obscured. The woman, who appeared to be in her 20s, did not seek medical attention.
