Woman Found Shot to Death in South Sacramento


A woman was found by her roommate shot to death Tuesday afternoon in south Sacramento.

Deputies responded at about 4 p.m., and found a woman inside the Mascot Avenue home with several gunshot wounds.

Michael Sanchez, a neighbor, told FOX40 he can’t imagine why anybody would want to hurt the woman, who was in her 50s.

“She was a nice lady,” Sanchez said.  “She was very cool.  She was always around the neighborhood, always saying ‘what’s up.’ She always used to have people in her house, taking care of them and everything.”

Investigators say they had no information about any suspect as of late Tuesday evening.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.
