Modesto woman bitten by dog wants animal removed

OAKDALE, CA - A frightening dog attack last week left a Modesto woman bitten and badly bruised.

Becky Peeper was bitten while visiting a home in Oakdale. She stopped by to care for a 90-year-old woman and was outside putting away the trash when it happened. According Peeper, there was no warning before the attack, no growl, no bark and no warning bite.

Peeper photographed her bite right afterward. She went to the doctor and filed a report with animal control.

The dog, a German Shepherd, is now under quarantine for 10 days on his owner's property. Peeper is worried that the dog will bite someone else, saying that it bit another adult and a child in the past. She said they did not file reports because they are relatives of the dog owner.

Riverbank teen killed in Empire driveby shooting

EMPIRE, CA - A 16-year-old teen was killed and another teen wounded in a driveby shooting Sunday night in Empire in which sheriff's detectives do not have information on the shooter.

Sgt. Anthony Bejaran with the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department says Rosendo Robles of Riverbank was found by deputies with a gunshot wound on the 5100 block of Inland Avenue in Empire at approximately 8 p.m. Robles was transported to a Modesto hospital where he died later of his injuries.

According to witnesses, Robles and two 17 year old boys he was with were driving around Empire when someone discharged a gun at their car on Inland Avenue, firing off multiple shots. One of the 17 year olds was also shot. His wound was not considered life-threatening, Bejaran said.

Detectives were looking into what led up to the shooting but did say they believe it was gang-related.
