A man was shot in the leg Wednesday afternoon after he was involved in an altercation over his apparent relationship with the suspect’s ex-girlfriend.
The shooting occurred around 12:15 p.m. near Kerr Avenue and Oregon Drive.
Heather Graves, spokeswoman for the Modesto Police Department, said a man was driving with his girlfriend when his vehicle was rammed by the girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend.
The two men got out of the vehicle and the ex-boyfriend allegedly drew a gun and shot the other man in the leg before fleeing the scene, Graves said.
