The relative peacefulness of Turlock residents going out to dinner, buying their groceries, and taking a stroll through downtown was shattered in the early evening by a hail of gunfire that wounded to men.

The two men were shot in a drive-by shooting around 6 p.m. Thursday in the 200 block of W. Main Street, near the intersection of Locust Street.

The first officers to arrive at the scene found the two victims suffering from gunshot wounds, which were described as non-life threatening. They were both rushed to an area hospital and are in stable condition, according to the Turlock Police Department. The police department stated they have been unable to verify the ages of the two victims.

The shooter or shooters fired a volley of shots at the two victims, with multiple bullet casings found in the area.

The police department did not release any description on the vehicle used during the drive-by.
