Photos from Thursday’s shootings

It’s no secret the newspaper industry has fallen on hard times in recent years. As a result, the hard copy that lands on your doorstep or available in newsracks is often slimmer than in years past.

That means there isn’t always room for photographs taken at crime scenes. So here are some photos taken at separate shootings Thursday afternoon.

The first is on Oak Street, between American and Stanislaus streets, where a 47-year-old man was shot twice in the legs around 4:30 p.m. It was taken with my point-and-shoot camera. The sun obscures some of the photograph, and that’s partially the reason it didn’t make the page.



The second is of the aftermath of the chaotic gun battle that took place at almost the same time of day on the opposite side of the Crosstown Freeway. This was taken on 8th Street near B Street, after a Dodge Charger flipped, rolled and landed wheels-down mere feet from a family’s home.

The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office had the scene pretty well quarantined off with crime tape, so I wasn’t able to get a photo of the 15-plus shell casings littering the asphalt near B Street.
