Two or three gunshots were fired by reported gang members from a car at 5:26 p.m. on Saturday at Elm and Garfield streets, according to Lodi police. Officers didn't find any evidence of ammunition or damage, according to Lodi police Sgt. Mike Oden.

Witnesses said several gang types were at a church in the northwest corner of Elm and Garfield, where they threw rocks at a blue Oldsmobile going by, Oden said. The occupants of the Oldsmobile fled the area after firing the gunshots, Oden said.

Robbery in Flag City on Easter morning

Two men reportedly robbed a Three B Truck Stop clerk of an undetermined amount of money at about 3:26 a.m. Sunday, according to the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office.

Two black males, one armed with a black handgun, fled the area in a vehicle and went east on Highway 12 toward Lodi, according to a sheriff's report. The truck stop, a Union 76 gas station, is in the 14700 block of North Thornton Road in Flag City.

One suspect was described as about 6 feet tall, thin build, wearing a black sweatshirt and a hood covering his face, and black pants, according to the report. The person reporting the incident couldn't give a description of the second man.

    Most of those little thugs *are* home in the East Side. They were born here. I agree about their terrible shooting, though. They always seem to hit innocent people, even little children, instead of their targets.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
