Stockton semi-pro football player shot, killed near sports bar

A semi-pro football player is killed outside of a Stockton sports bar. According to friends, Cedric Purify, 26, was shot after trying to intervene with a fighting couple near Fats Bar and Grill on N. Pershing Avenue.  

"It seems unreal," said Dewayne Smart. Smart played with Purify on the Central Valley Hurricanes Football team.  He says he was with Purify Sunday morning at Fats, but the two were separated before the shooting.  "I saw him laying on the ground," he said.  "I mean just yesterday, we were out here having football practice and talking about life goals and things like that," Smart explained. 

Instead of playing ball at Michael Faklis Park, the Hurricanes gathered to pay tribute to their brother.

Homeless camps on Stockton streets to be removed

It's moving day Saturday for hundreds of people living in tents and other structures on the streets in Stockton. The city gave notice earlier this week that those people were trespassing, and need to move on.

"The city wants to run these people, but where are they going to go?" Juanita, a woman who lives in her car near the homeless service agencies that offer food, clothing and medical care told ABC10.

City of Stockton spokesperson Connie Cochran couldn't address where homeless people would go, only that it was necessary for health and safety reasons to clean the streets, and the private property where camps have been built. She said help is available through other agencies.
