SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — There was a large law enforcement presence at a South Sacramento apartment complex Monday following a deadly shooting.
Just after 2 p.m., Sacramento County Sheriff’s Sgt. Rod Grassmann says deputies responded to the area of Dewey Boulevard and Iowa Avenue, south of Fruitridge Road.
“They found a single male adult victim with multiple gunshots on the ground next to a vehicle,” Grassmann said.
Deputies tried CPR but emergency responders pronounced the unidentified man dead at the scene.
Grassmann had no suspect information to share, including if the suspect or suspects were in a vehicle.
“What we’re doing now is talking with witnesses in the complex. This occurred just inside the parking lot of this complex. And trying to piece together what might have happened,” he said.
It’s unclear if the victim lived in the apartment complex.
“This community center right here has seen its share of violence recently,” Grassmann said. “We are working with the community to try to change that.”
Officials are asking the public to avoid the area.
