Early this morning at 1:15AM, Sheriff Patrol deputies responded to a business establishment in the 1900 block of Fulton Avenue, after receiving multiple reports of gunfire at the location. When deputies arrived, a 20-year old male shooting victim was found in the parking lot and pronounced deceased at the scene.
Throughout the course of the investigation thus far, Sheriff Homicide Detectives have determined that multiple people were shot during this incident; up to five victims at this point. Detectives believe there were a large number of people in the parking lot of the establishment when two separate altercations broke out, resulting in more than one subject firing a weapon. Detectives are unable to determine yet the motive for the shootings or the role/relationship, if any, between each shooting victim.
The homicide victim’s identity in this incident will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.
