SACRAMENTO, CA | Truck crashes through parking lot smashing into parked cars. At hospital, gun shot discovered and victim dies.

Late Friday evening, a white pick-up truck blazed across the parking lot at Hard Time Billiards on Garfield Blvd. and slammed into several parked cars shoving them up against the structure.

On scene security personnel advised us that CHP found a large amount of “weed” in the truck and we later witnessed CHP removing what appeared to be marijuana in a jar from the vehicle.

The driver of the truck was extricated from the vehicle and transported to the hospital via AMR ambulance in critical condition. It was later discovered at the hospital that the driver had been shot and Sheriff deputies were advised. The man subsequently died at the hospital.

The victim has been identified as Steven Carmassi, 35, of Sacramento by the Coroners office.

Deputies do not know how the shooting occurred, but believe it happened near the incident location. Detectives are hard at work to locate a shooter and cause. If you have information about this crime, you are urged to call the sheriff’s homicide detectives at (916) 874-5115 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP.
