Police are on the hunt for possible suspects after shots were fired in Lodi late Tuesday morning.
At approximately 11 a.m., Lodi police responded to the corner of Eden and Central streets, where multiple witnesses reported that they had heard at least two shots fired, according to Sgt. Doug Chinn.
Officers said a group of individuals near the light pole of the corner of Eden Street fired at a group just north of them on Central Street. The group that was fired upon ran north on Central Street, while the group that fired the shots ran east on Eden Street, Chinn added.
Chinn also stated that witnesses said the shooting was a gang-related.
Witnesses told police that the person who fired the shots was wearing a red sweatshirt. Officers stopped one man who matched witnesses' description on the corner of Garfield and Tokay streets, but he was later released, Chinn said.
Two other male juveniles were also stopped on Central Street and Tokay Street, but they were also eventually released.
Despite speaking with multiple residents in the area, Chinn said no one came forward to provide further information to help police identify possible suspects.
Chinn added that police were not able to find a gun, blood or shell casings.
"It is a mystery," he said. "We are just hopeful that no one got hurt."
Anyone with information on the robbery is urged to call the Lodi Police Department at 209-333-6727 or Lodi Area Crime Stoppers at 209-333-6771.
