Modesto Police detectives are investigating a shooting that left one person critically injured. The shooting created a chain reaction, which resulted in the victim driving his vehicle into two parked cars, a fire hydrant, and striking two pedestrians, as the victim was attempting to escape the gunfire. On Wednesday May 9th, just a little after 7:00 P.M., Modesto Police officers were called to Robertson Road Park, located at 500 Hammond Street, in west Modesto, for a reported shooting. When officers arrived they located the victim, a 21-year-old male Modesto resident, sitting in the driver?s seat of a black BMW vehicle. The victim suffered from at least one gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital, where he is listed in critical condition. The initial investigation has revealed the victim and his friend, an 18-year-old male Modesto resident, were involved in some type of altercation with a group of males at the park, earlier in the evening. The altercation escalated and when the victim and friend tried to leave the park in the BMW, a suspect from within the group at the park fired several shots at the BMW. The victim, who was driving, was struck at least once as he continued to speed away. The victim hit a parked car, struck a fire hydrant, and hit two pedestrians before hitting a second parked car and coming to a rest. The two pedestrians were treated at local hospitals and sustained minor to moderate injuries, as a result from being hit by the BMW. The shooting victim?s friend, who was the passenger in the car, did not suffer any injuries. Modesto Police detectives from the Violent Crime and Gang Units are following-up on leads, interviewing witnesses, and processing the crime scene. Investigators are looking into the possibility that the altercation and shooting may have been gang-related. At this point in the investigation, limited information is known about the shooting suspect. He described as being a Hispanic male in his mid-20?s, 5?-6? tall, and weighing approximately 280lbs. He was last seen wearing a black shirt and blue jeans. Police ask anyone who may have information regarding this incident to call Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636.
