A man was airlifted to an area hospital Sunday evening after being shot near an apartment complex on the 600 block of Wimbledon Drive.

The incident occurred around 8:30 p.m. and is likely gang-related, said Officer Shad Canestrino of the Lodi Police Department.

As officers were questioning witnesses near the apartment complex and on the 2200 block of Scarborough Drive, another emergency call drew several units to a scene almost three miles away.

Officers believe a man was assaulted near the intersection of Garfield Street and Lodi Avenue around 9:40 p.m. There was also a report of a shot fired in the area, Canestrino said.

“Residents said the victim was bleeding from the head and asking people for a ride,” Canestrino said. “He (the victim) said he didn’t want the police to get involved.”

Blood was found on Garfield Street and the area was temporarily closed to traffic.

It is unclear if the incident is gang-related. Officers were still investigating and could not confirm or deny if the two events are related, Canestrino said.

No information on the shooting victim’s condition was available as of press time, nor was information on possible suspects.

    Mr. Chaney, of course you are right. I mean after all just because these guys are cowardly punks, they deserve a fair trial. So let's begin this "common compound" with the ones that have had their fair trial and been convicted and are currently imprisoned. Give them all all big knives, drugs and cans of spray paint. Maybe put one gang in charge of the food? Perfect solution for California's overcrowded prisons.

    Mr. Baxter, I would hope that any gang member would be accused of a crime, tried and convicted before locking anyone of them up. Some of them are already "trimming the herd" although they aren't yet incarcerated. Sad when gang members are killing their own kind over territory criminal activities. They are well known for also invading the sacred territory of the white man and taking what they want or need. This thuggery has been going on since the inception of Adam and Eve.

    What? Lodi has gangs? Why I am absolutely stunned. Who would have thought? They should round up all he known gang members, put them all in the same fenced in compound and give them all weapons and let them "thin the herd" themselves.
