Man shot during west Modesto house party

A man was recovering from a gun shot wound Monday after gang violence erupted at a house party in west Modesto, authorities said.

Deputies responded to the 1200 block of Ritsch Lane around 10 p.m. Saturday and found a Latino man suffering from a shot to the upper torso, according to captain Tim Beck of the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was treated for nonlife threatening injuries.

Beck said neither the victim nor witnesses would cooperate with the investigation, which “is pretty typical in these types of incidents,” he said, adding that “no imminent arrest is anticipated.”
