Nobody was injured when a bullet was fired into a Lodi apartment late Sunday night, but police are looking for anyone with information on the matter.
Around 11:30 p.m., several shots were fired toward an apartment complex in the 500 block of Murray Street, said Lodi Police Sgt. Bill Alexander. Officers recovered a bullet from inside a car and an apartment, where people were home at the time.
Police said there were no immediate witnesses or suspects. Alexander said it could be connected to "another case we're investigating," but declined to give further details.
He asked anyone with information to call police at 333-6727. Anonymous calls may be made to Lodi-Area Crime Stoppers at 333-6771.
Man pleads no contest to evading police
A man who picked the wrong place and time to flee from Lodi police - near the July 4 fireworks show with extra officers on duty - has admitted to evading police.
Daniel Conroy, 24, of Stockton, pleaded no contest last week to evading police, driving with a blood-alcohol content higher than 0.2 percent, and driving on a license that was previously suspended due to drunken driving.
Conroy was arrested shortly before the fireworks show started at Lodi Lake, after an officer tried to pull him over for speeding on Lodi Avenue. He fled, winding up in the Park West area of Lower Sacramento Road.
He soon abandoned the vehicle, ran through an acquaintance's house and leaped over a brick wall to Turner Road. Officers were about a mile east, monitoring crowds and a road closure, and a motor officer soon caught Conroy.
At the Aug. 3 court appearance, Conroy was sentenced to 90 days in jail, fined $2,453 and placed on five years of formal probation, according to San Joaquin County court records.
