Man shot in west Modesto

A man underwent surgery Thursday night after being shot in west Modesto.

Modesto police responded to Oak Street and Martin Luther King Drive just before 10 p.m. for a report of a drive-by shooting with the victim down on the ground, said Lt. Brandon Gillespie.

Responding officers could not find a victim in the area, but a man with a gunshot wound to the abdomen showed up at a Modesto hospital a short time later.

Gillespie said the victim underwent surgery, but the lieutenant did not know his condition Friday. No description of the suspect or suspects, or the vehicle used in the crime, was available.
