A 19-year-old man was shot twice in the leg in a drive by shooting in Turlock Friday night.

The same shooting also left rounds in a home, vehicle and a tree, said Turlock Police spokesperson Officer Mayra Lewis.

The gunshot wounds to the victim’s left calf and thigh were not considered life threatening, Lewis said.

The shooting was reported around 6:30 p.m. Friday in the 300 block of Angelus Street.

The Turlock Police Department received multiple reports of shots fired in the area, with a possible injured subject. The first officer to arrive found the area had been the scene of a shooting, but did not find any victim. While investigating the shooting the police department was informed a man had been taken to Emanuel Medical Center with two gunshot wounds.

The victim told officers he was walking on S. Orange Street and was at the intersection with Angelus when he heard what he initially thought was fireworks, before falling to the ground with two gunshot wounds, Lewis said.

The victim stated he did not get a good look at who shot him. Other witnesses described seeing a light-colored four door sedan fleeing the area and headed towards Lander Avenue.

The victim told officers he was not affiliated with any gang and did not know why anyone would shoot him.

The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Turlock Police Department at 668-5550.
