The victim of a Tuesday evening homicide in Stockton might be related to the recently murdered Melanie Martinez.
While investigating the homicide of a 32-year-old man, Stockton police were approached by the family of Martinez, who said the two are related. Police wouldn't say how the two are related.
Police were called to the 2000 block of Madrid Drive Tuesday evening for a report of shots fired. Upon arrival, they found a 32-year-old man in front of a home suffering from gunshot wounds. He was transported to an area hospital where he later died. There is no suspect information at this time.
Police are looking at both cases to see if the two are connected. Three-year-old Martinez was killed last month in a drive-by shooting on the city’s Southside.
