Man Found Shot in Sacramento, Dies Hours Later at Hospital

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (PSNews.us) – A homicide investigation is underway after a person was shot and killed in Sacramento overnight.

Around 1:15 a.m. Tuesday, Sacramento police officers responded to the intersection of San Carlos Way and 8th Avenue for reports of gunshots heard in the area.

After arriving in the area, officers were contacted by a citizen who advised of a gunshot victim nearby. The officers located the adult male victim near the corner of San Carlos Way and 8th Avenue. The victim was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Officers provided first aid until they were relieved by paramedics from the Sacramento Fire Department. The victim was transported to a local area hospital for treatment, where he was pronounced deceased at the hospital several hours later.

At this time, the police department says there is no indication this incident is gang-related. The motive for the shooting is unknown and detectives have not identified a suspect at this time.

Since You're Here

…we have a small favor to ask you. More people are viewing news from PSN than ever before. Despite our growing popularity, we are struggling to provide you coverage about what is going on in our community. Currently, PSN consists of a small, part-time team of volunteers who pay out of their own pocket to bring you news.

We have not put up a paywall because people have a right to know what’s going on in our community. We cannot survive on advertising alone because advertising rates are collapsing-threatening the existence of many local news outlets.

PSN’s unmatched coverage takes a lot of time, money, and hard work. But we do it because we want to serve our community and you deserve to know what’s really going on around you.

PSN obviously puts a lot of time and effort into bringing news, real news, to Sacramento. There’s no bias, no filter, no agenda; just events unfolding as you would see on scene. Anyone who is concerned about public safety should look to these guys first, it may not always be pleasant but it’s always reality. -Scott H.

If everyone who values our reporting helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support PSN and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
