A drive-by shooting in Galt on Monday left no one injured, but the shooter remain on the loose.
At approximately 3:40 p.m., Galt police responded to a call of shots fired in the area of B and 7th streets in Galt.
According to Lt. Jim Uptegrove of the Galt Police Department, a green 1990s Dodge Caravan or Plymouth Voyager pulled along side two subjects who were walking down the street. A Hispanic male adult suspect with a tear drop tattoo under his right eye and possibly four dots under his left eye exited the vehicle, asked the victims if they "bang" and then fired four to five rounds at them using a revolver, Uptegove said.
Though no one was injured, Uptegrove said police initially had no witnesses to the incident, until investigators were able to track down and speak with the two victims yesterday.
Uptegrove added that the two witnesses are cooperating with police and they described the suspect as being in his midto late 20s, 5-feet 9-inches, and approximately 180 pounds with a muscular or stalky build.
The victims also said the green van has fading paint as well as a missing or broken window on the passenger-side sliding door. Also, the window was covered with cardboard or brown paper that was taped in place.
Uptegrove said Galt police are preparing a sketch of the suspect based on discussions with the two victims.
He added that the suspect is believed to be a Norteño, and the shooting is believed to be gang-related.
