FAIR OAKS, Calif. (KTXL) – Around 10 a.m. near the intersection of Rabeneck Way and Phoenix Avenue, a homeowner’s security camera recorded a USPS mail carrier walking back to her vehicle.

A short time later she called 911 after coming across two bodies lying in a driveway. 

“My understanding is that there was a single firearm that was recovered at that scene,” said Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Rod Grassmann.  

According to Grassmann, authorities received a call from a USPS manager saying the mail carrier discovered two bodies, a man and a woman, both with gunshot wounds. 

A neighbor told FOX40 he heard four shots recorded on his home security system. 

Sgt. Grassmann says those shots may have been fired an hour before the 911 call was placed and could have been hard to hear as it happened. 

“There’s a lot of road construction going on and when I was there earlier there was a tremendous amount of noise so I could see that perhaps somebody wouldn’t hear shots being fired,” Grassmann said. 

“You know, you see things happen all the time but not in this area here,” said neighbor Orlando Ewings. “It’s a pretty nice area in general, it’s just shocking to see something like this happen out of the blue on a Monday.” 

Sgt. Grassmann told FOX40 no one has been arrested and there are no outstanding suspects.
