Lodi police found four casings from a nine-millimeter gun in the street in the 1800 block of South Central Avenue at 9:40 p.m. Saturday.
Police were responding to a call from a witness at Vine Street and Central Avenue who said they saw shots fired out of a gold SUV, said Lt. Tod Patterson.
A neighbor also heard the shots fired, and it was unclear if his house was the target. Police could not find anything that was struck by the bullets.
Teen shot by someone riding a bicycle
An 18-year-old went to Lodi Memorial Hospital at 2:30 a.m. Sunday with a gunshot wound to the mid-back.
He told officers that he was alone while walking south on Garfield Street when he was shot by someone on a bicycle, said Lt. Tod Patterson.
He heard two shots, and then realized he'd been shot. He then ran to Lodi and Central avenues and called a friend.
The victim did not know why he had been targeted, and said he is not a member of a gang but does have Norteno friends, Patterson said. He did not have a description of the shooter.
Rain likely today, sunny rest of the week
