“At approximately 5:29 a.m. on Monday, January 17, 2022, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center received a ShotSpotter Activation on the 4100 block of Greenlawn Way in North Highlands in Sacramento County; two minutes later, a resident on the same block called and stated that someone came onto the property and shot a family member.

“Deputies responded to the location and found an adult male victim with multiple gunshot wounds. Metro Fire arrived moments later and transported the adult male victim to a local area hospital where he was pronounced deceased hours later.

“Preliminary investigative details point to an adult male who was burglarizing vehicles in the immediate area. The suspect went into the rear yard of a residence and entered a detached structure where he most likely obtained a firearm from a gun safe stored there. When the homeowner confronted the suspect in the detached structure, he was shot multiple times in the upper body. The suspect fled on foot and is still at large.

“CSI is collecting evidence, witnesses are being interviewed and Homicide detectives are investigating. No suspect information nor any further information is available at this time.

“The identity of the victim, in this case, will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office.

“Detectives are asking anyone with information relating to this incident, to please contact the Sheriff’s Office at (916) 874-5115 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at (916) 443-HELP. Tip information may also be left anonymously at or by calling (916) 874-TIPS (8477). “
