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.

'Concussion' screening held in Lodi with local doctor who inspired the film

A special screening for the Hollywood film 'Concussion' was held in Lodi on Saturday night, with the local man who inspired the movie.

Dr. Bennet Omalu, a San Joaquin County pathologist who currently lives in Lodi, discovered the disease experienced by professional NFL players who sustained repeated concussions during their careers.

The disease is called chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or C.T.E.

'Concussion' is based on Dr. Omalu's findings and his battle with the NFL over those findings.

"I think everyone should go see that movie,"  Dr. Omalu said at the screening. "Every family that has a child that plays any type of sport."

Actor Will Smith plays Omalu in the film, and is now up for a Golden Globe for his role.
