NORTH HIGHLANDS-

A drive by shooting in North Highlands Sunday afternoon sent one man to the hospital.

It happened on the corner of Walerga and Greenholme.

Witnesses told FOX40 the suspects fired several shots at a man standing in front of an apartment there.

Neighbors who spoke with FOX40 would not give their names out of fear of retaliation by the shooter or shooters.

But those witnesses said the man was hit in the hand and taken to the hospital by a friend.

At least three bullet holes pepper the outside of the apartment he was standing in front of.

The two people who live inside told FOX40 they were fortunately taking a nap at the time of the shooting and were out of the line of fire.

Sheriff deputies are still investigating who pulled the trigger, and so far have not released any information.
