Sheriff’s officials on Friday were investigating a shooting in which two workers were hit by gunfire Thursday night at a dairy several miles west of Turlock.
The dairy workers suffered injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, said Stanislaus County sheriff’s Sgt. Josh Clayton. He said one of the men suffered a gunshot wound to his face and the other was hit in the leg. Both men were hospitalized.
The shooting occurred about 10 p.m. Thursday at the dairy in the 2300 block of West Fulkerth Road, near South Carpenter Road.
It’s unclear what might have led to the shooting, including whether it was an attempted burglary or some type of dispute that escalated to gunfire. Clayton on Friday afternoon said he didn’t have any information that might indicate a motive.
