MAN CRITICAL AFTER SHOOTING: A Denair man who was shot Saturday during an apparent robbery attempt and home invasion in Turlock remained in critical condition Monday, authorities said. Frederick Osborne, 35, was shot in the head when, according to police, he and James Watkins, 36, of Turlock kicked open the door of a home in the 300 block of South Broadway Avenue. Watkins, who was shot at least twice, died Saturday, said Sgt. Steven Williams, a Turlock police spokesman. Police recovered one gun at the home and will submit it for testing as the investigation continues, Williams said. Police said a 21-year-old man was home alone when Osborne and Watkins broke in; he has not been charged in connection with the shootings. Officers are trying to determine whether a fourth person was involved, Williams said.

I hope he gets his gun back in a reasonable amount of time (immediately following "testing" would be better). Pueblo, CO keeps things in evidence 6 months to 3 years.

My old home town, and I go there 2x per month to shoot. Apparently someone there doesn't take anything from anybody!

I live just north of Modesto near a little town called Riverbank. Modesto is yet another one of those California cities wherein you can shoot the bad guy who kicks in your front door but if he attacks you on the street you are SOL.
