No victims were found, but four shots were fired Wednesday night near a Lodi home.
Police were called at 8:11 p.m. to area of Washington and Elm streets, where a witness said two males had chased another male and fired shots, according to Lodi police.
Officers found three shell casings in the driveway of a home off the north alley in the 300 block of East Elm Street, and another near the apartment complex in the 0-100 block of North Washington Street, Capt. Gary Benincasa said.
As of Thursday, no victims had reported being struck or had shown up at local hospitals, Benincasa said.
Descriptions were vague, as the sun had long set and there was no moon. One witness saw a tattooed male holding a gun, then putting it in his pants before running toward Hale Park. Another said a female was running with two suspects.
Report: Freeze, alter smelt DNA for future
STOCKTON - A new report says that scientists should consider captive breeding of the threatened Delta smelt, as well as preserving and altering the fish's DNA to help it survive in a changing environment.
The tiny fish are a bellwether for the health of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and at the heart of a dispute over pumping to slake the thirst of farmers and cities to the south.
The report by a coalition of state and federal agencies has been criticized by a fisheries biologist at the University of California, Davis, who says "there's no substitute for fixing the environment."
