STOCKTON (AP) ― A 15-year-old Modesto girl is dead and her boyfriend wounded after a shooting outside a house in Stockton that neighbors say is the site of frequent and noisy parties.
Police say the girl was shot early Friday morning outside the home. She was taken to a hospital, where she later died. Her 17-year-old boyfriend was wounded, but is expected to survive. Their names have not been released.
Stockton police are trying to determine what prompted the shooting. They don’t know yet if it was gang-related.
The fatal shooting is the 44th homicide in Stockton so far this year.
