Last night at 9:59 p.m., Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the report of a shooting in the 4000 block of Green Tree Drive in south Sacramento. When deputies arrived they discovered three victims, seated in a parked vehicle, suffering from gunshot wounds.

A fourth victim, who had also sustained a gunshot wound, was discovered inside a home nearby. Fire paramedics arrived a short time later and transported all four victims to local hospitals.

The first victim, a 20-year-old-male, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds later died at the hospital. The second victim, a 24-year-old male, suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the upper-body; the third victim, a 42-year-old female, suffered a gunshot wound to the leg; the fourth victim, a 20-year-old male, also suffered a gunshot wound to the leg. The second, third and fourth victims are expected to survive.

Investigators have learned the four victims were seated in the parked vehicle when an unknown suspect-vehicle, containing an unknown number of suspects, drove alongside and someone from inside the suspect-vehicle opened fire with an unknown weapon striking the victims. The female victim was able to make her way to a nearby home after she had been shot.

The identity of the victim who died will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office after they notify next-of-kin.
