STOCKTON (CBS13) – Stockton Police are asking for help in finding the suspects who shot a teenage girl several times as she and friends stopped to change a flat tire.
The shooting happened back on July 14 at 11 p.m. in the parking lot of a Big Lots in the 8000 block of West Lane.
Police say the 17-year-old girl, Jhonetta Nagle, and six other juveniles were in the parking lot attempting to fix the flat tire when a 1990s Ford Mustang entered the parking lot, drove around recklessly and then left.
A few minutes later, the Mustang returned with another car, a Honda Civic. The driver of the Honda Civic fired four to five shots, according to police. Nagle was hit several times, including a shot to her face.
She is currently at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento in critical condition.
Witnesses described the Honda Civic as a late ’90s model, brown or black in color, sedan and lowered. The alleged shooter is described as an Asian male, 24-27 years old and may possibly have face and arm tattoos of Asian type writing.
Witnesses say the Mustang was silver with no rims and tinted windows. The driver is described as a Hispanic male, 18–22 years old.
