Stockton teen killed in drive-by shooting

Police are asking for the public's help after a teenage father and husband was gunned down Saturday night.

Investigators said 17-year-old Alexis Sanchez was fatally wounded at about 11 p.m. outside a convenience store on the corner of Market and E streets. He was a passenger in a car that was shot at by gunmen in an SUV.

The driver of the victim's car realized his cousin had been shot and drove to a nearby home in the 2300 block of East Lindsay Street where he was able to call for help. Officers found Sanchez in the passenger seat suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Paramedics arrived and pronounced the young man dead.

Investigators have released surveillance video they said shows the moment Sanchez was shot.

"Everything indicates that whoever was inside that SUV targeted our victims's vehicle for some reason," Stockton Police Officer Joseph Silva said.
