Police in Stockton California has issued a stark warning to locals this week amid the connection of physical evidence to at least 7 grisly murders/shootings. According to police, 6 men and 1 woman have been shot since early April in murders that are all now believed to be connected by physical evidence. The only survivor according to police is in fact the woman dating back to the original April shooting. A man was shot dead in Oakland six days prior to this shooting.
Locals are being asked to avoid unlit areas at night and not to walk alone where possible. If you are in the area and must leave your home at night hop in the car. If that isn’t possible, someone needs to know where you are at all times.
