SACRAMENTO — Police in Sacramento say a man was fatally shot Friday night along 5th Street just south of Broadway.

Neighbors say they heard gunshots, then police sirens rushing to the scene shortly after 9 p.m.

“I just saw officers racing down. It was just devastating,” neighbor Kristen Rand said. “I was hoping nobody was hurt or anything bad happened to anybody.”

Investigators say officers and paramedics tried to revive the man, who had been shot several times, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Family members declined to speak on camera, but say the 37-year-old victim lived in the public housing complex with his wife and three young children.
