Lodi Police Department SWAT team members secured the 400 block of East Locust Street late Thursday afternoon and officers arrested a 14-year-old Hispanic boy in connection with a gang-related killing earlier this week.

At approximately 4:30 p.m., residents, huddling together on driveways and on street corners, looked on as Lodi police and SWAT team members responded to 416 E. Locust St. where police arrested the juvenile.

Shortly after the arrest, Lodi police released information on a second suspect, 18-year-old Jorge Rodriguez, who is also wanted in connection with the murder.

Neighbors and family of the boy were removed from the premises as SWAT members entered the apartment to make sure the area was secure.

The juvenile was arrested without incident and formally charged with murder for his alleged role in the homicide that occurred Wednesday on Central Avenue between Pine and Oak streets, according to Sgt. Bill Alexander.

On Wednesday, policed identified Shedley Frazier, Jr., 20, of Lodi, as the man who was gunned down on Central Street. He died after being shot several times in the chest. The shooting, police say, was gang-related.

Alexander said the juvenile arrested Thursday was taken into custody after police worked for roughly 24 hours compiling information regarding the slaying.

Alexander also said the shooter from Wednesday's homicide is still at-large and no weapon has been found.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Detective Maynard of the Lodi Police Department at 209-333-6873 or Lodi Area Crime Stoppers at 209-333-6771.

    Death sentence, if there is no doubt it was him. And not in 15 years..within the next 6 months. If he is old enough to murder someone in cold blood, he's old enough to take the consequences

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?
