Police search for downtown shooting suspect

The Turlock Police Department is looking to identify the man who fired a gun inside a downtown Turlock nightspot.

The shooting happened around 1:30 a.m. Friday at The Udder Place at 110 W. Main St.

There were no injuries reported from the shooting.

There were about eight people in the establishment at the time, including the suspect and employees, said The Udder Place General Manager Devin Hill.

Service had ended and patrons were leaving. The suspect was near the back entrance when he pulled out the gun and fired it into the ceiling.

Hill said the suspect had not been involved in any sort of confrontation with anyone in the business prior to him firing the shot.

After shooting the gun the suspect exited out the back door and got into a white Dodge Challenger that was in the alley, said Turlock Police spokesperson Sgt. Mike Parmley.

The vehicle was last seen driving on South First Street and witnesses said a second shot was fired.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male adult wearing a black shirt and jeans.

Investigators are reviewing surveillance footage from The Udder Place and other businesses in an attempt to identify the shooter.

This is still an open investigation and anyone who may have been a witness or has any information about this incident is encouraged to call Officer Cherish Hood at (209) 668-5550 ext. 6767.
