A Sacramento man was shot and killed Sunday night while standing in his own back yard.
Officers and medical responders showed up to the home on Calzada Way shortly before 10 p.m. The 42-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators believe the man went outside to check out some sounds, and may have interrupted a property crime.
Officers did not have a description of the shooter, only saying the suspect left the area in a vehicle.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact Sacramento Police Dispatch at (916) 264-5471.
