Lodi PD: Wounded man says shooting gang related

By Bill Lindelof

A man shot in the elbow Tuesday night in Lodi told police he was fired upon because he was a member of a particular street gang.

Lodi police were called to the 500 block of East Elm Street about 9 p.m. by citizens who heard several gunshots. While responding to the scene, officers also learned that a man had been shot and was in the street.

Officers found a 21-year-old man in the road in front of 508 East Elm Street who had suffered a gunshot wound in his right elbow. The victim, who was not identified, said he was shot because he is a Sureno street gang member.

Police are following up on leads today. Anyone with information is asked to call police at (209) 333-6873.
