Both suspects were affiliated with local street gangs. Corrales was booked into county jail and the 16-year-old was booked into juvenile hall, Lodi police said.

No arrests yet in 2 separate Lodi shootings that happened 14 hours apart

LODI, CA – Though no arrests have been made following two Lodi murders in a 14-hour period, police are investigating the possibility the killings are connected and gang related.

The first murder happened Sunday afternoon when a 20-year-old man was shot in the back in a driveway on South Garfield Street.  Police only knew that a light-colored SUV was where the gunfire came from.   The victim was identified as Silvestre Guzman Bedolla Jt.

The second murder happened about 4:30 Monday morning, just 14 hours later, several blocks away.   Relatives identified the victim as 27-year-old Louis Delatorre. They said Delatorre was involved in gang activity as teenager but changed his ways for his two daughters.

Police said he was shot in his truck as he prepared to leave for work.

Second fatal Lodi shooting in less than 24 hours

It’s been less than 24 hours since Lodi Police Department responded to a fatal shooting along S. Garfield Street, but investigators were back in the area Monday morning responding to another.

The incident occurred around 4:38 a.m. on East Oak Street, less than half a mile away from the scene of another fatal shooting that occurred at the corner of South Garfield and E. Tokay streets.

When police arrived at the scene of the Monday shooting, officers discovered a 27-year-old Hispanic man in a vehicle parked on the street. According to police, the man had suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police report an investigation is already underway, searching the area for evidence and conducting neighborhood interviews for possible witnesses.

Lodi bat attack victim is back home

Chronic headaches is one of the consequences Jackie PIckett has to live with after police say a teenager beat her with a bat, leaving her unconscious.

The obvious question after the attack was, "Why?" But Jackie just wants to pick it up from here.

“Everything happens for a reason,” Jackie said. “I'm so excited for life.”

She doesn't know her suspected attacker, 17-year-old Dulce Rios who is being charged as an adult. Rios is being examined to determine if she's mentally stable for a trial.

Jackie says she holds “no anger or hostility towards anyone,” including the suspect.

She was attacked when she was walking her dogs in Beckman Park in Lodi. Although she doesn’t remember the moments before or after the beating, she has been told if it wasn’t for a man who called police, maybe she wouldn’t be alive today.
