California shooting leaves one dead, four injured

A shooting incident has left a man dead and four other people injured in central Stockton, California, according to US authorities.

After receiving a call on Monday night, officers arrived at North California and East Hawthorne Streets in Stockton to see one man lying dead on the ground, Press TV reported.

Two men and two women were injured and were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Stockton Police Officer Joe Silva said.

Silva said police have not arrested any suspect, noting it was not clear if this was a drive-by shooting.

However, authorities say that the incident may be gang-related.

About 4.5 million firearms are sold annually in the United States at a cost of 2 to 3 billion dollars.

Over 6,000 people have been killed and over 13,000 people have been injured by gun violence in the country since January 1, 2015, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
