Police are investigating a possible shooting Sunday night, Aug. 4, near the intersection of Parker and Lowell avenues.

Officers went to the 1600 block of Court Drive at 11:13 p.m. after someone dialed 9-1-1 and disconnected. On the initial call police heard someone yelling about going to the hospital, and on callback police got an open line and heard a man in the background yelling profanities before the line was again disconnected. The call went to voicemail on the next callback.

Police then got a call 11 minutes later from Sutter Tracy Community Hospital regarding an 18-year-old man who had a gunshot wound to his leg. Police were told that he had been walking near Parker and Lowell avenues when two men approached him and shot him in the thigh, and then learned that the shooting possibly happened in a nearby garage.
