A Turlock man was shot after an argument on Saturday, the bullet grazing the victim's head.

The incident occurred at approximately 7:23 p.m., near Broadway Park, after Jose Coria, 53, and a male victim allegedly became involved in a verbal dispute.

According to Turlock Police, Coria initially left the area after an earlier argument Saturday evening. Coria then allegedly returned as a passenger in another vehicle, renewing the argument.

As the argument escalated, Coria is accused of firing a handgun at the victim, grazing his head.

The Turlock Police Street Crimes Unit then arrived at the intersection of North First Street and Orchard Streets to see Coria enter a vehicle driven by Linzey Pacheco, 20, which sped away.

The victim, holding his head, informed Turlock Police of what had occurred. He was later treated at an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Coria has been arrested for attempted homicide. Pacheco was arrested for destruction of evidence and possession of narcotics.

Anyone with additional information regarding the incident is asked to contact Turlock Police Department Detective Amy Beebe by calling (209) 668-5550 ext. 6629.
