BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Bakersfield police said two men were wounded, one of them critically, Saturday night during a car rally on White Lane.
Officers were called to the 2300 block of White Lane for a victim of a shooting and found a man with a severe gunshot wound. The man was taken to a hospital and was listed as critical, officials said.
A second man arrived at a hospital suffering from a minor gunshot wound, was treated and later released.
