ATWATER -- No one was injured in a shooting early this morning along the 2900 block of Secretariat Drive.
Lt. Sammy Joseph of the Atwater Police Department said the suspect shot at the victim's car around 4 a.m. and hit it several times. Six .45-caliber casings were found at the scene.
The incident appears to be gang related because there are documented gang members living in a house near the scene of the incident, Joseph said. It's unclear how many suspects were involved or if they shot from a car or on foot.
Detectives are investigating the shooting, Joseph said. Details are still preliminary.
Never miss a local story.
"The officers are concerned about escalating gang violence it that area," he said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Bill Richards at (209) 357-6387.
