Multiple Victim Shooting at Antonio’s ***Update***


Details:  Lodi Police detectives continue to investigate a drive-by shooting, at Antonio’s bar on Beckman Road, which left three people wounded last night.  The suspect vehicle is believed to possibly be a red sedan or sports car.  The suspect(s) has not been identified or described.


All three victims are in stable to good condition; none of them sustained life threatening injuries.  They were identified as:


Maria Cecelia Salas Prado,      DOB- 8/9/83     Resident of Lodi


Benito Ojeda Reyes                 DOB 2/12/74    Resident of Stockton


Gustavo Gutierrez                   DOB 6/17/78               Resident of Stockton  (Antonio’s Security)


Due to patient privacy concerns, specific injuries and receiving hospitals will not be released.


There is no indication as to the motive for the shooting at this point, nor is there any evidence that it was gang related.  A security camera at the scene did yield some taped footage of the time frame surrounding the shooting.  It is still being analyzed, and releasing the contents at this point may hinder the investigation.


Additional updates will be posted as information becomes available for release. Anyone having information on this case is urged to call Lodi Area Crimestoppers at 209-333-6771.  Anonymous calls are accepted, and may lead to cash rewards.
