Gunshots, fleeing juveniles precede 3 Galt arrests

From Niesha Lofing:

Suspected gang activity disrupted a Galt neighborhood Thursday evening, leading to the arrest of three boys.

Officers were called about 6:42 p.m. to the 200 block of 2nd Street on a report of possible shots fired, a police news release states.

Witnesses provided suspect descriptions, and Galt police searched the area and found three juveniles about a half-mile away on Spruce Avenue. The boys fled when officers approach but were caught and taken into custody.

Two of the boys had no-bail juvenile warrants, and the third allegedly possessed a loaded firearm, the release states. All three were booked into the Sacramento County Juvenile Detention Center.

Police say they believe the incident is gang-related. An investigation continues.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Galt police at (209) 366-7000.
