Stockton police continued to search Wednesday for attackers who fired on a group of people outside a market in a drive-by shooting, killing three and wounding four.
Police said a 27-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene, then two more victims were pronounced dead at a hospital – a 24-year-old man and 20-year-old woman. Four other men, ages 24, 25, 32 and 38, were wounded but were expected to survive.
The working-class, Central Valley city has been trying desperately to turn a new leaf but has a long and violent history. Last year, suspected gang members robbed a bank, took three hostages and led police on a wild chase across the city until two were killed and the third captured.
Tuesday night’s shooting took place in a small corner market parking lot that was well-known to police as a gathering spot for gang members and drug dealers.
