Two-Year-Old Shot Outside Of Liquor Store In Stockton

A two-year-old boy was shot Sunday on a street in Stockton.

The young victim was caught in a wild hail of bullets.

A mother left her two-year-old son just outside the liquor store at Park and California streets as she went inside. 

A minute later shots rang out and she rushed outside to find the toddler wounded. 

Stockton Police Officer Joe Silva says police were quick to respond. 

“When officers arrived, they located a two-year-old boy who was with his mother and it appeared that the boy had some type of gunshot wound to his head area and was transported to a U.C. Davis hospital,” says Silva.

According to Silva, the wound was not life threatening.

He adds that down the street earlier a crowd had gathered, from which gunfire erupted that also hit several cars.
