One man was robbed and another was shot in the foot after they responded to a party invite on Instagram, according to Rocklin Police.

The crimes occurred on Abilene Circle, just north of Whitney High School.

Detectives were called once the police officers learned both of the victims responded to a post on Instagram about a party.

The victims arrived to the party’s listed location in separate vehicles. They quickly noticed that the house was dark and there was clearly no party happening there. The victims report that two men arrived and started arguing with them. One man claims to have been thrown to the ground and robbed of his wallet, keys, and cell phone while the other victim was shot in the foot before the two suspects drove away.

There is little information available on the suspects, so the police are searching for more answers.

If you have any information regarding this case, please call the Rocklin Police Department Investigations Unit at (916) 625-5400.
