A man pulled up to the United Gasoline on East Main Street around 8:29 p.m. with his daughter and a young boy in the car, according to KTLA sister station KTXL.

The Stockton Police Department reports three men in a white, two-door car shot at the man and two children, hitting the 4-year-old girl at least twice as well as the vehicle she was in.

The girl has been taken to UC Davis Medical Center and is in critical but stable condition.

Leandro Perez witnessed the scene unfold from across the street and heard the gunfire.

“They came in here. The owner said, ‘Come in here,’” Perez said. “I heard them yelling, ‘Get in here, get in here.’ I thought they were just getting out the way. I didn’t know the little girl got hit until today.”

Officers are searching for the suspects, who they believe are two Hispanic men and one black man. They could not provide any further information on their identities or the identities of the victims.

Stockton police have not commented on a motive for the shooting or whether the victims were the intended targets.
