Lodi Police investigate murder where suspect allegedly ran over victim who had restraining order in place

A homicide in Lodi where the victim was allegedly run over with a car by a suspect who had a restraining order in place in under investigation by police.

Just before 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 30, Lodi Police responded to Pine and Kelly streets regarding an altercation between a man and woman.  Witnesses reported said they saw the woman run the male over with her vehicle and flee. 

Officers located the 59-year old male victim with severe injuries who was pronounced dead at the scene. About 30 minutes later information was received that the suspect vehicle had been involved in a separate collision in the area of Bruella and Acampo roads. 

The suspect, a 40 year old female of Lodi, was injured in the collision and transported to a local hospital where she is currently in serious but stable condition. At this time the victim and suspect are believed to have been in a domestic relationship, and there is currently a domestic violence restraining order in which the suspect is the restrained party and the victim is the protected party. 
The investigation is on-going, and the suspect will be taken into custody for homicide, assault with a deadly weapon and other violations pending medical clearance. Police have not released the suspect's name because of the on-going investigation and the victim’s identity is being withheld pending next of kin notification.
LPD is asking anyone with information to contact LPD at 209-333-6727 or Detective Hitchcock at 209-333-6871. You may also contact the Lodi Area Crime Stoppers at 209-369-2746 to remain anonymous. (Please reference LPD Case #19-6821.)
