Stockton police officer, another person killed in shooting


STOCKTON, Calif. (KTXL) — Police say a Stockton officer and another person involved in a shooting have both died.

The Stockton Police Department tweeted at 10:40 a.m. that the shooting was on La Cresta Way, south of Bianchi Road.

Both were taken to the hospital where they later died.

A neighbor told FOX40 they heard 10 to 15 gunshots, though what led to the shooting was not immediately clear. Gunfire rings out in a video captured by a man who was working in the area at the time of the shooting.

Police are expected to release more details later in the day.

“At this moment, our community grieves the loss of one of our very own Stockton police officers,” Stockton Mayor Kevin Lincoln said in a video posted to his Twitter account. “This is a time for us to come together, to surround and support one another and to pray for the strength, healing, comfort and peace of all that have been impacted by this great tragedy.”

This is a developing story.
