Investigators in a north valley town are investigating three separate shootings that all happened within a week.

On July 5th a man and a woman were shot in two separate incidents in Winton, the woman died.

Yesterday afternoon, another man and woman were shot near the intersection of Oakdale road and Fisher road.

Investigators believe the shootings that happened last Friday were random but the victims from yesterday afternoon, they believe were targeted.

Either way neighbors in the area don't feel very safe.

"It makes me nervous to have somebody shot right down the road. I used to think it was a safe place to live, but now I'm beginning to wonder," says neighbor Wilda Thornhill.

The Merced County Sheriff says he is working on a proposal that will help deter drug crime in the area.

Meanwhile, they'll have extra deputies out patrolling.
