One Man Killed, Another Man Injured in Upper Land Park Shooting

SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento Police Department is trying to figure out who pulled the trigger in an Upper Land Park shooting that left one man dead and another man injured.

Around 9:51 p.m. Friday, police responded to a shooting near 300 Seavey Circle in the Alder Grove housing project.

“We just heard gunshots and stuff and we thought it was coming from the front," said a resident who asked not to be named.

Neighbors inside their Seavey Circle homes were terrified after hearing at least seven shots fired.

"My grandbaby was up and down the stairs and stuff and you never know if a bullet is going to hit something, ricochet and come in the house," said the unidentified resident.

Two men were located at the scene with gunshot wounds and were transported to a local hospital. One man died from his injuries at the hospital; the other man is in stable condition.

“It was taped off from this pole all the way down half a block. [There were] police cars everywhere," explained resident Joseph Goudy.

At this time, police do not know a motive for the shooting.

"It’s just senseless, another senseless crime," Goudy said.

Goudy worries he may know the two men who were shot. He says during the day the housing project has always been peaceful, but at night, it’s a totally different place.

“Just a lot of people do a lot of dumb stuff late at night around here," Goudy explained.

Goudy hopes this doesn't lead to more violence.

“Man, let’s just try to get along and do better for each other and ourselves. That’s all we can do as people," Goudy said.
