Just after 1 a.m. Friday, a Sacramento Police Officer called out a shots fired in the area of Bar West on J Street and 28th Street.

While additional police units were en route to the scene code 3 (lights and sirens), officers reported via radio that two subjects were in custody and a Glock handgun had been recovered.

As additional units arrived on the scene, a crime scene was established, and officers searched for bullet casings and evidence.

One detained subject was questioned and released. The other subject remained in custody. When CSI arrived, a GSR (Gun Shot Residue) test was utilized on his hands, the scene was documented and photographed and bullet casings along with one live round were collected.

According to reports, the shooter was on 28th Street and was firing north. Officers checked the park to the north and surrounding areas to be sure there were no victims anywhere.

“Officers responded to a report of a subject shooting a gun in the area. It appeared that no persons nor structures were hit. Officers detained the involved subject. During the investigation, a firearm was located. The subject was arrested for negligent discharge of a firearm,” the Sacramento Police Department Stated.
