Denair Shooting at Marijuana Grow Results in Additional Scenes


At about 11:00pm Friday night, Stanislaus County Sheriff’s, Denair Fire, and American Medical Response responded to an assault with a firearm that had just occurred at a residence in the 4800 block of Glenmoor Way in Denair.

When deputies arrived on scene, they found evidence of the assault, but no victims. Denair Fire and AMR were cleared.

Turlock Police and Stanislaus County Sheriff’s then received several calls reporting shots heard in the 2200 block of E. Monte Vista Avenue, just outside the city near N. Quincy Road, but could not respond immediately.

Within minutes, Turlock Police, Turlock Fire, and American Medical Response responded to a hit-and-run that had just occurred at W. Monte Vista Avenue and N. Golden State Boulevard.

When units arrived on scene, they found a maroon 2008 Toyota Sienna still at the scene.

No injuries were reported.

The maroon Sienna sustained minor damage that required it to be towed away.

Through the investigation, officers learned that the suspect vehicle was a maroon Hyundai that had been last seen westbound on W. Monte Vista from the intersection.

Officers were then able to finally respond to the shots heard on E. Monte Vista. Even though the address was also in Denair, Turlock officers responded to assist due to them getting several 9-1-1 calls about it, deputies being busy at the Glenmoor address, and this address only being about 300 yards outside Turlock.

When officers arrived on scene, they located evidence of a drive-by shooting, with at least 10 shell casings in the roadway.

The victim of the original assault on Glenmoor then turned up at Emanuel Medical Center after driving himself there, according to the sheriff’s office. He suffered non-life-threatening injuries from at least one gunshot wound. Officers and deputies responded there to investigate.

While an officer was still at the hit-and-run on W. Monte Vista, she was approached and advised that the maroon Hyundai had been abandoned at Boot Barn in the 3200 block of Countryside Drive, near the Chevron.

Other officers arrived at Boot Barn and located the Hyundai, confirming it was unoccupied, but parked right by some surveillance cameras.

The Hyundai was discovered to be registered to the assault victim who was at Emanuel Hospital.

Deputies eventually relieved officers at both scenes on E. Monte Vista and Countryside, processing them for evidence.

All three incidents are being investigated as one continuous incident.

Through the investigation, the Glenmoor residence was discovered to be an illegal marijuana grow. A search warrant was served and the investigation will be furthered by the sheriff’s office Marijuana Enforcement Team, and possibly their Major Crimes Unit at a later time.

No motive or suspect information is currently available.

The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with information that could assist in it is encouraged to call the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office at 209-525-7074.
