STOCKTON, Calif. — Stockton has a long history of bloodshed.
More than 500 people have been killed in the city in the past decade, and at least a thousand more have been wounded by gunfire. It’s a cycle of violence that has broken families, left neighborhoods in fear, and forced city leaders to scramble to find solutions before the next grave is dug.
And while there are many people trying to rewrite that history, some say it's not being written quick enough.
