Homicide on Florin Road

Crowd of 50 to 70 people; no witnesses coming forth

On September 4, 2010, at 2:26 a.m., Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the corner of Palmer House Drive and Blackhawk Drive regarding a shooting which had just occurred.

When deputies arrived they located two 26-year-old females in a gold sedan. The driver had suffered a gunshot wound to her upper body.

The passenger was uninjured. Fire department paramedics arrived a short time later and pronounced the driver dead at the scene.

Deputies learned the passenger and the victim had been at the Fastrip gas station at the corner of Florin Road and Power Inn Road together with a crowd of 50-70 people. The victim and the passenger were sitting in their car, which had been parked on Florin Road, when three to seven gunshots were fired by someone in the crowd, for an unknown reason.

The victim was struck by the gunfire and drove from the scene to where the vehicle was found. The crowd had dispersed from the gas station when deputies arrived, minutes later. Deputies were able to detain five subjects, none of whom are believed to be suspects in the shooting.

Sheriff’s Homicide investigators have not established a motive for this murder and it is unclear whether the victim was the intended target.
