Hard news

I can't remember a month that has had this many spot news events take place.  Every time my phone rings in the middle of the night my first thought is who died?

Todays spot news extravaganza had me at the Delta Mendota Canal early in the day to photograph the search for a missing Swedish man believed to have been drowned in a car accident when a driver racing on a Tracy Municipal Airport runway careened through a chain link fence and plunged into the canal.

After finishing the photos and just about to unwrap my sandwich for lunch when I had to go to the scene of a shooting on Tracy Boulevard where a man was found shot in the neck during an apparent drive-by shooting.

You got to love it, it's always a party in Tracy.
