Police Investigating Homicide Near Rosa Parks Middle School in South Sacramento

SOUTH SACRAMENTO -- Authorities are investigating a homicide near Rosa Parks Middle School in South Sacramento.

Officers responded to the scene near Muirfield Way and 68th Avenue around 1 a.m.

"It had to be over four rounds. At least more than for and then, all of a sudden, I heard cars pull away," a neighbor said. He did not agree to publicize his identity.

Investigators found an adult male with a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries. Also at the scene was a gold Chevy sedan, riddles with bullet holes and a blown out back window.

No motive or suspect information has been determined by investigators. Detectives said it was too early to say if the shooting was gang-related.

The neighbor FOX40 spoke with says he's lived there since 1973. It's always been quiet, but lately he says it's getting worse.

"It's gone up and down in the 40 years of me being here," he said.
