Sacramento Homicide On 8th Avenue

On September 27, 2009, at 2:33 a.m., Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of several people involved in an argument at a home in the 6900 block of 8th Avenue in Rio Linda. Callers later reported hearing multiple gunshots. A Twin Rivers Police Department (TRPD) officer arrived and found a 19-year-old male sitting in his vehicle in the middle of the street; he had suffered a gunshot wound to his head. Deputies arrived, and together with the TRPD officer, rendered medical aid to the victim. Paramedics arrived a short time later and pronounced the victim dead at the scene.

Witnesses told deputies there had been a large party and a fight broke out when several people, who were not invited to the party, were asked to leave. As party goers were leaving, the shots rang out and struck the victim who was driving away from the party. Also in the car with the victim was a 20-year-old male; he was not injured by the gunfire. None of the witnesses claimed to see who fired the shots.

The suspect and motive for the shooting is unknown at this time. Anyone with information about this shooting is urged to call Sheriff’s Homicide detectives at 916 874-5115 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP; or send a text message tip by texting to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.
