SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A search is underway for multiple suspects after a double shooting leaves two teenagers dead along a busy south Sacramento roadway.

Just after 12:00 Tuesday afternoon, Sheriff’s deputies and police officers responded to a business along the 5200 block of Fruitridge Road near Stockton Boulevard. Multiple reports came into 9-1-1 of a shooting that just took place, with two victims down.

Within minutes of the calls, law enforcement officials arrived and found two teenage victims down in the parking lot of a business suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

Paramedics quickly responded to the scene and declared the two victims deceased.

Information gathered at the scene led Sacramento police officers to a home on the 7300 block of Rotella Drive off of Belleview Avenue. Multiple police officers, a police helicopter and members of the SWAT team surrounded the home for hours. It is believed that this may be the home of at least one of the shooting suspects.

The names of the two shooting victims will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner after notification of the victims’ next-of-kin.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.
