One Dead, Another Injured in North Sacramento Shooting

SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento Police Department is investigating a deadly overnight shooting near Dry Creek Road and Harris Avenue in the Del Paso Heights neighborhood.

Sacramento police say around midnight, officers were alerted by ShotSpotter about the gunfire along Dry Creek Road. When they arrived on scene, they found a man unresponsive.

"I was asleep and I heard about four gunshots, really, really loud," said neighbor Mina Perez.

They tried life-saving measures but it was unsuccessful. On Wednesday, the coroner's office identified the man as 25-year-old RC Carrier.

A woman was taken to the hospital and is expected to be OK.

Without a suspect or a motive, detectives have their work cut out for them to solve the city's 14th homicide of the year.

"Going through video surveillance cameras, checking other cameras that we have in the area as well and then getting witness statements to see if anyone saw anything," said Sacramento Police Officer Linda Matthew.

While investigators were towing away a bullet-riddled sedan, Perez says Tuesday morning she was more worried about her own safety than checking to see what happened.

"I've been here since 1964," Perez told FOX40. "So I've accustomed myself to knowing that this happens around you. So you just have to pay attention to where you're at, what you're doing, who's around."

Perez says shootings like this have been going on in her neighborhood for quite some time but she believes it's not going to be until the city gets involved that change will possibly come.

Anyone with information is asked to call the dispatch center at 916-264-5471.
