Sacramento, CA | Police called to a disturbance at Canterbury Inn, Wednesday morning, find a man shot to death.

Early Wednesday morning, several calls came into 9-1-1 for a disturbance at Canterbury Inn in Sacramento. When police arrived, they found one man had been shot and called for paramedics, who pronounced the victim dead on the scene.

Sacramento Police Department’s spokesman, Sergeant Norm Leong, tells us that the man had apparently broke in to a neighbors apartment. At some point, a loud argument was heard and then gun fire.

The Canterbury Inn, once a hotel, has turned into more of an extended stay establishment. Leong indicated that though they do receive calls from the establishment, nothing of this nature has transpired there in recent times.

Leong did state that we have had several shootings already this year and the police department is doing the best that they can.

Per Leong, the shooter in this incident was taken into custody on scene and the shooting victim was the only one injured.
