After gathering information, officers arrested two suspects in a high-risk stop — meaning officers stopped the suspects and instructed them to exit the vehicle instead of approaching the car — near Highway 99 and Morada Lane, according to Manetti.
Leonardo Alcantara, 20, and Andres Valdivia, 19, are being held in the Lodi City Jail on suspicion of weapons violations, the release said. Alcantara is also being held on suspicion of murder, and Valdivia is being held on suspicion of accessory to murder.
Both the Lodi Police Department general investigations unit and special investigations unit are still investigating the case and are looking for witnesses and possible video of the incident, Manetti said.
Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact the Lodi Police Department at 209-333-6727 or the anonymous tip line at 209-369-2746.
