STOCKTON — Damien Verrett, 22, turned himself in at the downtown Stockton police station late Wednesday and was charged with suspicion of attempted homicide in connection with Monday’s midafternoon shooting at the Mi Casa Apartments in north Stockton, police reported.
Verrett reportedly showed up at police headquarters about 5:15 p.m. of his own accord “and turned himself in for the shooting which occurred in the 200 block of East Bianchi Road,” according to the report.
After being interviewed by detectives, he was arrested on suspicion of attempted homicide and gun charges. Verrett was booked into San Joaquin County Jail in French Camp, where he remains on no bail until his pending arraignment.
The male gunshot victim was transported to an area hospital following the 3:40 p.m. Monday shooting. Thursday morning his condition was reported as critical but stable. Neighbors reported hearing arguing before the shooting began. No additional details have been provided by authorities.
