Police believe the suspects ran away from the scene in one or two cars, so they think there could be more witnesses out there.

Sacramento Police Homicide and Gang Detectives are interviewing many witnesses from the park and are looking for people who may have ran away from the scene before police arrived to step forward and help the investigation. Police are also asking anyone who lives in the area and has home surveillance to call police in case their cameras caught footage of the suspects.

If you have any information about this crime, the Sacramento Police Department asks you to contact the dispatch center at (916) 264-5471 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP (4357), or in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES). Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
