Officers were called out to Juneau Court and Conestoga just after ten o'clock last night for reports of shots fired.
On their way to the scene, they ran into a silver car driving down M Street near Olive. The driver of that car stopped and told officers he and his female passenger had been shot at Juneau Court and Conestoga.
An ambulance took the man to a Modesto hospital while a helicopter airlifted the female passenger -- also to a Modesto hospital. That's where the female victim passed away from her injuries.
"We believe the car was moving at the time the shots were fired. We have a description of anywhere between three to possibly six shots being fired," said Scott Skinner with the Merced Police Department.
Investigators now say they have two crime scenes to investigate. No arrests have been made.NEWS BY LOCATION | ABC30 BLOGS | DISCUSSION FORUMS
