The 500 block of East Elm Street was quiet with few people outside Sunday afternoon, just hours after a 35-year-old man was reportedly shot and killed at an apartment complex.

Pedro Meza was shot at least once in the head shortly after 9:30 p.m. Saturday in the carport of the apartment complex, according to Lodi police Sgt. Steve Nelson. Meza had died by the time officers arrived, Detective Eric Bradley said.

    this man is my friend Pedro and i knew eachother our entire life... he was a good man loved his daughters very much... he recently moved home after being away for years coming back home to lodi as many of us do... I haden't seen him in over 10 year and when he came ome we ran into eachother and talked about how much we have changed and what our live mean now.. this is so tragic and my heart hurts for his family and his children and his loved one family and friends. as far as i know he didnt have any enemies and was trying to better his life... i hope they find who did this and jutice is served... he's not just another Latino male living in gang territory, he was a great man and he was my friend... just cause he is a hipanic male and lives in the wrong neighborhood doesnt make him automatically gang related or a bad person... so grow up and dont be so quick to judge someone based on race and living areas..... casue our day will come to be judged one day!!! Rest in Paradise my friend... i will miss you everyday, but will never forget you!!!!

    Interesting story....Latino in Elm Street apartments shot and killed for no apparent reason, very strange.......must be an X file, or it is related to something.

    Doug, didn't you hear about the boy who cried "wolf". Now if you were to post something with merit, no one would believe it.

    I am truly disappointed., Drove all the way back to Lodi Friday, polished and cleaned on my hot rod until late Friday nite. Entered it in the car show Saturday in downtown Lodi with my name in bold print on the entrant card displayed in the front windshield. I figured surely some of my favorite posters would have stopped by and said "Hi". Played golf yesterday with 3 friends, two retired from the Sherriffs Office and one retiring next year. I told them about being investigated by the SO. One snorted beer through his nose and the other two doubled over in laughter, Nice being missed though. Leaving shortly to go back up to the beautiful north coast and fish some more. See ya.

    Mr. Jackson, ironically, I was banned from the Sentinel's blogs, but the same comments appeared in the Stockton Record and I wasn't banned there. Doesn't that seem funny to you? City manager Blair King even put me on the ignore list att the city hall website. The truth is, the truth hurts and the Lodi News-Sentinel has always covered up for the good ol' boys and girls and still does. Why do you think the three amigos let them off nearly scott free on the $50 million ground contamination lawsuit? And councilman Katzakian got the same sweet deal. We're paying the $50 million and they're living the wine$roses luxury lifestyle. No good ol' boys? Right. Thanks, Richard, but ot would take more than childish name calling from the racist bigots on these blogs to intimidate me. I see their buddy, phony joe, must have croaked or something, or one of these jerks gave up their other personality when the sheriff's office started inquiring about who Joe Baxter really is.

    Mr. Turner, I know you are a "new" poster here on the LNS blogs, unless you've been using another name in the past.

    Before this system on LNS, Doug went by "T&C," or Taxpayer and Citizen. His rants & raves against any & everything about the City of Lodi, City Council, Three Ayemeegos, Diede Construction, LUSD Board, etc etc etc are well documented, and legendary.

    Rule 6? HA! Doug can start posting on a LUSD article and somehow turn it into a conspiracy theory against the CoL, CC, etc. He on many occasions says that there is unlawful things going on in our city, at City Hall, all in inuendo fashion, but when asked to take such proof to the Grand Jury or such he does not.

    I have been blogging about Doug's antics for years. It is 90% of the reason I actually come on this website. I welcome the new addition of Mr.Chapman & Mr. Cook.

    Were you aware that the LNS banned Doug about 3 or 4 times and blocked him from posting due to his outrages personal attacks? He is a loose cannon. As I posted recently to Doug, if he doesn't like it here in Lodi then MOVE!

    RAYMOND, said "Doug blames the "Good Old Boys" for everything bad in Lodi." My exact intent. He is SOOoo easy to screw with and it is actually fun. His paranoia and conspiracy theories crack me up.

    Have you read the lns rules?6 Stay on topic. Make sure your comments are about the story. Don't flame each other.

    The shooting occured in Gang territory Robert, but LPD will not admit it.... and also, please don't get Doug started. Doug blames the "Good Old Boys" for everything bad in Lodi.

    I am guessing someone will certainly blame this on "the Good Old Boys". Wonder why this kind of news is happening in Lodi? Oh yeah, now I remember.
