Two shot in downtown Turlock

The Turlock Police Department is investigating a double shooting that happened early Monday in downtown Turlock.

The shooting was reported at 1:51 a.m. Monday at the Grand Cru at 130 W. Main St.

The police department received several calls stating someone had been shot at the bar and multiple officers responded to the scene.

An officer was approaching the back parking lot of the business and was flagged down by an individual who was with one of the shooting victims.

The male victim had sustained at least one gunshot wound and was seated in a vehicle parked in a nearby parking lot. 

The officer was able to provide medical aid to the victim until an ambulance and the fire department arrived to transport the victim to a local hospital.

As the investigation proceeded, the police department learned a second gunshot victim had arrived at the hospital on their own.

The preliminary report stated that both gunshot injuries are considered not to be life-threatening.

It’s believed the two victims were shot by the same individual.

Jerry Powell, owner of the Grand Cru commented on the shootings on a community Facebook page:

“We take safety & security very serious…we provide security that is 3 times what is required by law…we also use metal detectors at all entrances and have cameras throughout as well…we go above and beyond to create a fun & safe environment but as I stated some people make poor decisions,” Powell wrote.

There is no suspect information at this time.

Any witnesses or anyone with any information about this incident is encouraged to call Turlock Police Officer Henry Hernandez at (209) 668-6534.
