The shooting happened outside of Tracy Interfaith Ministries, 311 W. Grant Line Road, at around 1:15 p.m., according to Capt. Juan Espinoza of the Tracy Police Department.
It’s unclear how it started, but two people — a man on a bicycle and a person inside of a GMC truck — allegedly fired several shots at each other, Espinoza said.
One person inside of the truck suffered at least one gunshot wound and was taken to the Sutter Tracy Community Hospital in the truck immediately after the shooting, Espinoza said at the scene.
Espinoza would not release a description of the man on the bicycle, but did say that initial reports indicate the shooting is an isolated incident.
“We have investigative tips that we got, and we are trying to stay ahead of him,” he said. “We are going to put all the resources we have available to solve this. The safety of the community is paramount, but at this point, I don’t believe the rest of the community is at risk.”
At the hospital, three bullet holes could be seen around the passenger side door of the two-door truck. One bullet hole was visible in the windshield, and it appeared that the driver’s-side window was shattered.
The holes were roughly the size of a quarter.
The truck has two exhaust pipes, a silver front bumper and chrome rims and windshield wipers.
Espinoza said information about how many shots were fired, who started the shooting and why it happened was unavailable because investigators were still collecting witness statements and evidence outside of Tracy Interfaith as of 2:30 p.m.
The victim’s condition and how many times he was shot were not available, Espinoza said.
It’s also unclear if the person wounded inside the truck was the second shooter.
Officers were checking the outside of the Tracy Interfaith building for bullet holes, but Espinoza could not confirm if any were located.
No other injuries were reported, Espinoza said.
Anyone with information about the shooting can report it anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 831-6847.
