SACRAMENTO-

Sacramento Police officers and Sheriff’s deputies responded to a shooting early Sunday morning.

Police say it happened around 1 a.m. at the Arco station on 47th avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

Witnesses tell FOX40 they heard at least five shots fired, following an argument.

Cops say one person was struck. That victim was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.

"To be truthful people could have got hurt, if it had been crowded like it is now. But lucky it was nobody here really,” said the witness who did not want to be named.

That man tells FOX40 shots were fired in front of a gas pump. Three surveillance cameras point in that direction. Gas station employees said they would go through the footage on Monday.

People fueling up say the gun violence is upsetting but not uncommon in the neighborhood.

"It is unfortunate. I got a little one here and there’s just nothing you can do about it, basically,” said Jeremy Silva.

Soon after the shooting, officers were led on a short chase, which ended on 43rd street and 40th avenue.

Sacramento police say arrests were made following that case, but the suspects’ identities have not been released.

There are no suspects in connection with the shooting.
