STOCKTON — Police found a teenager shot to death at a home in southeast Stockton late Tuesday morning.

The 18-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene by medics. He was discovered about 11:20 a.m. at a home at the end of Colfax Court in a middle-class subdivision of single-family houses between Pock Lane and Highway 99, north of Arch Airport Road.

Police spokesman Officer Joe Silva could not say whether the victim, whose identity has not been released, was found inside or outside of the home. He also could not provide information on a motive for the killing or any suspect description.

“We are interviewing potential witnesses now,” Silva said about 90 minutes after the discovery.

Family members gathered outside the cordoned-off investigation area where they hugged and cried together as they awaited more information from police. They declined the opportunity to speak about the victim.

Residents described the neighborhood as quiet. While they complained of car break-ins and mail thefts, they felt safe from violence.

Tuesday’s homicide, the ninth investigated by Stockton police this year, is the second in the city this month involving an 18-year-old shot to death in broad daylight.

Nine days ago and five miles to the west, Ruben Chairez Cisneros, 18, of Stockton was found dead from a gunshot wound inside a vehicle in the busy Weston Ranch Center shopping center on South Manthey Road. No arrests have been made in that case.
