Sac Sheriff's Detectives Seek Help in Identifying Shooting Suspects

Sheriff’s Homicide detectives are seeking information regarding a vehicle and suspects involved in a shooting yesterday evening in south Sacramento. On May 5, 2011, shortly after 6:15p.m., deputies responded to the area of 47th Avenue and Franklin Boulevard in response to calls of shots being fired in the area. Information revealed that occupants from one vehicle had fired gunshots at people in another vehicle.

Approximately thirty minutes later, Sheriff’s deputies responded to a local hospital after a male victim arrived with a gunshot wound to his head. The victim, a twenty-year old, was not expected to survive his injuries. Witnesses stated that they had been traveling in the area of 47th Avenue and Franklin Boulevard, and were confronted by a group of subjects in another vehicle. After some confrontational looks were exchanged, someone from that vehicle fired gunshots at them. The victim, who was riding in the backseat of the car, was struck once in the head, and driven to the hospital immediately afterwards.

The suspect vehicle was described as a newer-model, silver Dodge Avenger, and occupied by four to five black males. The vehicle was last seen traveling southbound on Franklin Boulevard from the location directly after the shooting. Detectives have not established a motive for this incident, and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about this case, or who knows the identity of any of the suspects involved is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (916) 874-5115, Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP, or send a text message tip to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
