Stanislaus County coroner officials Wednesday released the names of two men shot and killed in Turlock and Modesto on Tuesday. Isaias Fierros, 37, of Winton was shot at a Turlock home. The shooting occurred about 5:30 a.m. at the home in the 400 block of Lewis Street, according to Turlock police. Lucio Lopez, 22, of Modesto was shot at a home in Modesto's airport neighborhood. The shooting occurred about 6:40 p.m. in the 1500 block of Monterey Avenue, just east of Kerr Avenue, according to Modesto police. Lopez was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Modesto police homicide detectives were investigating the possibility this shooting was gang-related.
