Turlock police are investigating a report of a drive-by shooting on Monday afternoon, according to Lt. Steve Williams.
A man who lives in the 1600 block of Joett Drive, just north of West Canal Drive between Highway 99 and the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds, was out in front of his house.
A man driving a white Lincoln Navigator east on Joett drove slowly by the house, and then made a U-turn.
The driver said something to the resident, who then approached the car. The two exchanged words, and the driver pulled out a gun, shot at the man and just missed his head. The bullet lodged in the house.
