Neighbors and police say the house on Pleasant Street is usually busy with adults and some children. But on Tuesday it was quiet. Officers say a shooting Monday night, clearly targeted at the home, left a toddler seriously injured.
“He said they were in their house. Heard about five shots coming through the windows and walls and everything. Found out the daughter had been hit. Brought her down here for attention,” said Coalinga Police Sgt. Sean Young.
Neighbors said they heard a handful of succinct gunshots. Detectives say the weapon was a large caliber handgun. Four slugs were recovered in the home and one went through to a neighbors house.
