Two people who were shot early Thursday morning just north of Lodi were in critical condition Monday, according to the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office.

The shooting took place at about 12:30 a.m. on the western frontage road off Highway 99, south of Woodbridge Road, sheriff's spokesman Dave Konecny said.

Both victims underwent surgery, one at a local hospital and the other at a Sacramento hospital, for treatment by a specialist, Konecny said.

The Sheriff's Office would not disclose the names, ages or genders of the victims, and the nature of their wounds was not revealed.

The Sheriff's Office e-mailed some sketchy information to the media late Thursday but didn't provide an update until Monday afternoon.

The case remains under investigation.

    LodiJoe, at the time you described, I have a feeling there was more than one sherrif`s unit that answered that call, especially if shots were fired. Send everything you got.

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?
