An afternoon walk through downtown Stockton

On Tuesday I was walking through downtown Stockton a bit after 4:30 p.m. when I heard two police sirens. I had just turned east from El Dorado Street onto Miner Avenue when I saw two police cruisers heading north on El Dorado. And then shortly after there were more sirens and cruisers heading east on Miner, north on El Dorado and what seemed like from a few different directions.

I called the office to see what was going on and was told there was a shooting at American and Oak streets. My route would not take me close to that area but I managed to get a photo from American Street at the Miner Avenue intersection.
