Loved Ones Mourn Loss of Ceres Woman Killed in Shooting

Published

on

CERES – A woman shot and killed last week was identified on a GoFundMe page where her loved ones are seeking help with funeral costs.

Yessica Mendoza was 29 years old. She was shot Thursday night on the 3900 block of Suncrest Drive in Ceres. She was a young mother of three children.

At about 9:17pm Thursday, police received a call reporting a person shot. The caller reported her husband’s friend had just shot a woman. Authorities also received another phone call indicating the woman had shot herself.

Authorities at the scene said the suspect, identified as 29 year old Daniel Garcia, was staying at the residence where the shooting occurred. They believe Yessica came over to visit at some point in the day.

Arriving officers found the victim down in the grass bleeding from at least one gunshot wound. They began lifesaving measures on the woman and performed CPR until medics arrived. Police officers searched the home to make sure there were no suspects inside and no one else was injured, escorting the occupants out of the house.

Garcia was detained as a person of interest after declining to cooperate with authorities. A small caliber handgun was later located near the victim in the grass.

Garcia was taken to the Ceres Police Department to be interviewed by detectives, and was later booked into the Stanislaus County Safety Center for homicide. Authorities say he and the victim have children together.

The victim was rushed to a hospital by ambulance where she died from her injuries. A GoFundMe account was created to help with funeral costs.

“We weren’t prepared for such a tragedy. We need all the help we can get to give her a proper burial and lay her body to rest”

First lunar eclipse of the year visible across the valley

Published

on

RIPON – The lunar eclipse takes place only during a full moon when Earth is in between the sun and moon, casting a shadow on the surface of the moon. The bright colored moon which attracts spectators is only seen once every 1.5 years, estimated by NASA.

The lunar eclipse was estimated to begin its deep penumbral stage at 7:15pm on May 15, 2022. By 7:59pm it should have reached the 50% partial stage. Totality began at 8:29pm and the full color everyone was waiting to see occurred at around 9:11pm. That rare sight began to end by 9:54pm. It was 50% partial by 10:23pm and reached its deep penumbral stage by 11:10pm where it ended.

Weather for the total lunar eclipse in some areas caused some to miss out on the rare occurrence. In Ripon and Stockton light cloud coverage crossed the mid stages of the eclipse. Meanwhile in some Modesto areas it was visible. National Weather Service estimated the temperature to be in the mid 60s to upper 70s for the valley.

Although a total lunar eclipse occurs only around every 1.5 years, your next opportunity to see it again will be November 7th 2022 going on to the eighth.
