Man killed, 9-year-old girl 'hit in the head' with gun following shooting in Stockton | Update

Two adults, a man and woman, were shot. The man has died from his injuries.

STOCKTON, Calif. — A young girl was injured Tuesday night following a shooting in Stockton that resulted in one person killed. 

According to a Facebook post from the Stockton Police Department, just after 10 p.m. Tuesday, March 22, officers were called to a shooting along the 2500 block of Marsh Street. When officers arrived, they found two adults, a 32-year-old man and a 52-year-old woman, suffering from gunshot injuries. 

Officers also found a 9-year-old girl at the scene of the crime who apparently was hit with the gun. All three victims were taken to an area hospital. The man has since died from his injuries. 

During their investigation, police took 42 year old Fredrick Wesley into custody. Officers believe Wesley forced his way into a home with four minors inside, one of which was the 9-year-old girl. 

Someone in the home called their grandmother and uncle, and when they arrived, Wesley reportedly shot them. 

"Detectives believe this was a random act as the family did not know the suspect," Stockton police said on Facebook.
