On Saturday, October 24, around 8:50 p.m., 13 year old Alize Valadez was at her grandmother’s home watching a movie on the couch when bullets were fired at their home. One of the bullets struck Alize in the head. Her grandma was home during the time of the shooting. Her grandma was not injured.
She was rushed to the UC Davis Medical Center. Thankfully, she survived the shooting but she is now on life support.
Many students around the district posted an Instagram post paying their respect to her. A fellow student of hers, Chanthou Hong, also a former River Bank student said, “I knew her from back when I was in 8th grade and talked to her a few times. She’s a really nice girl and it’s sad to see an innocent girl, who had nothing to do with the shooting, get this severely injured. I hope the best for her and wish all the strength for her family.”
The West Sacramento police department have found the man that had connection to the shooting, he was a 39 year old male named Sonny Martinez, who was from Stockton. He was arrested and booked in the Yolo County jail. The charges pressed on him were attempted murder, shooting at an inhabited dwelling, battery with serious bodily injury and a gang enhancement.
The police are still unsure of how the shooting occurred and what the reason was behind it. Kinney, one of the police officers said, no other houses in the neighborhood were struck by the bullets.
“I didn’t know about this shooting until I went on Instagram and saw all these posts with the hashtag, #Pray4Alize. I didn’t know her but hearing about this was really shocking because it happened in Broderick and a lot of my friends live there,” says freshman Manav Patel.
