Turlock Police Investigation of Waring Road Shooting Reveals Off Duty Officer from Modesto was Involved

On September 30, 2011, at approximately 2:53am, the Turlock Police Department responded to the 2000 Block of Waring Road, for the report of shots fired. Investigation revealed that an off duty police officer from an allied law enforcement agency had been involved in a shooting. An initial press release was distributed but while withholding some information and details.

During the initial investigation, the motivation of the driver was unknown. Safety issues related to the neighborhood and the officer were considered; therefore some information was withheld until further investigation could be conducted.
Additional and updated information from the Turlock Police Department now reports that the off duty officer involved, and who was not in uniform, was Jason Stewart of the Modesto Police Department.
Officer Stewart heard sounds of a vehicle driving through front yards. He investigated and saw fresh damage to two front yards, caused by a vehicle having driven recklessly through them. 
According to Turlock Police, Officer Stewart was in one of the front yards when he saw a pickup drive slowly into the driveway of one of the victim residences. Believing the vehicle to have possibly been involved, he approached it attempting to obtain the vehicle license number and/or talk to the suspect(s). As he approached, the vehicle suddenly accelerated and drove toward the officer who retreated to avoid injury. As he did so, the officer fired his weapon at the truck, striking it four times.  The vehicle fled southbound on Waring Road. 
Late Friday night, the registered owner of the truck involved in the incident contacted the Turlock Police Department. The registered owner does not appear to have been present at the time of the incident.
The driver has subsequently been contacted and was not alone in the truck.
The names of the occupants in the pickup are not being released at this time as the investigation is continuing. The vehicle involved was a 2006, white Ford pickup and has been accounted for.
Neither the occupants nor the officer were injured.   
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Brandon Bertram at (209) 664-7323. The Turlock Police Department is an active participant in the Crime Stoppers Program.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
