Trigger-Happy Stockton Man Arrested for Attempted Murder

STOCKTON — On Friday, just over 24 hours after wounding three people in a central Stockton shooting, 22-year-old Kevin Hanes was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Approximate location of shooting

Over the course of the initial investigation into the shooting, members of the Stockton PD Community Response Team as well as the multi-agency San Joaquin County gang task force discovered the shooter’s residence in the 1400 block of East Oak Street, only two blocks from where the shooting occured.

According to Stockton PD spokesman Joe Silva, CRT officers and members of the U.S. Marshals Service descended on the home at around 4:30 PM, at which point Hanes tried to escape on foot but was firmly taken down and into custody with the help of a police dog. He is believed to be responsible for the shooting in the 1200 block of East Oak Street on Thursday afternoon that left 3 injured — 1 in critical condition — and his charges include suspicion of attempted murder, assault with a firearm, and resisting arrest.

Hanes’ younger brother, 19-year-old Kenneth, was then arrested after attempting to interfere with his older brother’s arrest. He now faces charges of interfering with a police investigation and resisting arrest.
