1 killed by Stockton CHP officer


A person was shot and killed by a California Highway Patrol officer in Stockton Saturday afternoon.

CHP responded to a reckless driver call east of Highway 99 in north Stockton, Officer James Smith said. When officers found the driver near E. Foppiano Lane and Oneto Road, the truck had crashed into some brush.

Officers approached the driver, who then presented a weapon at the officers, Smith said. The officers then fired at the driver and fatally wounded the subject. Smith said the officers performed life saving measures, but when medics arrived at the scene, the driver was pronounced dead.

Family of Manteca man killed in Gaza strike

Family of Manteca man killed in Gaza strike

Even as the violence escalates following the breakdown of Friday's ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, some Palestinian-Americans are slowly learning about family members affected by earlier incidents.

Like many Palestinian-Americans, Manteca's Mohammad Elfarra has been watching the news from Gaza closely, but the worst report came in the form of a phone call from a friend in the West Bank.

"He said, 'hey give me a call back. We just saw something on the news that reported a family of eight from the Elfarra family in the Gaza Strip in Khan Younis, which is our home town, that they were killed in one air strike,'" Elfarra recalled.

Soon other family members began confirming the reports.

"There's no words for it until you experience it," Elfarra said. "You have nothing that can describe that pain and that hurt."

Heated argument in Stockton leads to homicide

SACRAMENTO -- San Joaquin County Sheriff deputies learned that a heated argument between neighbors may have possibly lead to a man's death in Stockton Saturday night, according to San Joaquin spokesman Steve Moore.

At around 9:00 p.m. deputies arrived to the 900 block of S. Olive Ave in Stockton, after they received several calls about a shooting in front of a home in the area.

When deputies arrived they found one man outside a home with a gunshot wound to his upper body. When paramedics arrived they pronounced him dead.

While at the scene deputies learned that a heated argument between neighbors may have lead both sides to produce guns before the shooting happened. One subject is currently detained while another is wanted for questioning according to Moore.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office at (209) 468-4400
