Deputies investigate Patterson shooting, carjacking

PATTERSON, CA - A man was shot and wounded in a carjacking just outside of Patterson Monday afternoon.

The victim's condition wasn't known. Stanislaus County sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Anthony Bejaran said he was flown by medical ambulance to a hospital.

The carjacking was on the 2600 block of Orange Avenue, Bejaran said. Deputies were dispatched at 1:05 p.m. When they arrived, they found the victim next to a cornfield.

Bejaran said the carjackers took the victim's green SUV, a 2007 Toyota, California license plate number 6AND659.

Investigators didn't have a description of the carjackers.

Bejaran said investigators don't know why the victim was targeted.

Anyone who sees the Toyota SUV was urged to call 911 and not approach the occupants. Authorites consider them armed and dangerous.
