POLICE: One Dead, One Hospitalized After Shootout | Citrus Heights


On May 23, 2022, at approximately 10:55 PM, the Citrus Heights Police Department received numerous 911 calls regarding reports of shots fired in the area of 6000 block of Birdcage Street in the City of Citrus Heights.

CHPD officers quickly arrived and located a male subject suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the walkway of an apartment complex. The 20-year-old male subject was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. Officers then located an additional male subject with multiple gunshot wounds inside a nearby apartment. That 20-year-old subject was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The 6000 block of Birdcage Lane was closed off for several hours while Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators processed the scene.

CHPD Detectives are actively investigating the homicide. At this time, investigators believe this is not a random act; the parties involved likely knew each other. Preliminary information revealed that both subjects appeared to be shooting at each other.

Anyone who has any additional information related to this homicide investigation is encouraged to contact the Citrus Heights Police Department tip line at (916) 727-5524 or the Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at (916) 443-HELP.

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.
