Two men were shot Monday afternoon while sitting in lawn chairs in the front yard of a west Modesto home.
Police were dispatched to the 600 block of Placid Lane about 5:15 p.m. and found the two shooting victims with nonlife-threatening injuries, according to Sgt. Terry Seese.
Officers collected shell casings from the back seat of a Honda parked in the driveway. There was a hole in the rear window that a bullet had penetrated.
While the shooting appeared to be a drive-by, officers still were interviewing multiple witnesses Monday evening, Seese said.
Never miss a local story.
The victims, in their early 20s, were uncooperative with officers at the scene. One could be heard yelling at emergency workers from the ambulance. They were taken to a hospital for treatment.
Nearby James Marshall Elementary School was not in session during the shooting, but dozens of children played at the park north of the school.
