Neighbor Tried to Revive Del Paso Heights Shooting Victim
Bullet holes in the hood and fender of a Buick in Del Paso Heights, markers of a brutal crime scene on Las Palmas Avenue.
Sacramento officers say it began around 11:30 Thursday morning, while a man in his 50’s was tinkering on a car. That’s when a car pulled up.
“They shot through the hood and he did get a chance to run, but he didn’t get far,” says neighbor Glen Martin.
Neighbors say eight or nine shots were fired. Once the shooting stopped, they came out of their homes to see what happened.
“This guy is laying on the ground with four bullet holes in his head, his face, his body,” Martin said.
Martin told FOX40 the victim, who still hasn’t been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner was still breathing when he got to him, but was barely hanging on.
“I told him to hold on, you know, giving him CPR and stuff, you know. As a matter of fact, he was alive when he left here, but he’s dead now,” Martin said.
Sacramento investigators looking for evidence of a motive and clues to a suspect – on the ground, in the car, all around Del Paso Heights. Detectives say the victim lived in the neighborhood, now they want to know who shot him in the middle of the day, just two days after Christmas.
