Shooting Ends with One Person Dead

The Sacramento Police Department is investigating a shooting that left one person dead and another at the hospital. 

On May 8, 2010, at 7:48 p.m., officers responded to Dixieanne Avenue and Oakmont Street on a large fight with two people who had been shot.  Upon arrival, officers found a male Hispanic 21-years-old who died at the scene and a male Hispanic 19-years-old who had been shot and was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Homicide detectives and Crime Scene Investigators responded to the scene.  Based on the preliminary investigation, detectives believe that the victims got into an argument with a group of subjects who were attending a party at a hall on Del Paso Boulevard.  The argument escalated, turned physical, and continued onto Dixieanne Avenue where someone shot the victims.  The suspect is described as a male Hispanic, in his 20's, 5'7", 160 lbs, wearing a light colored shirt and blue jeans. 

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this crime to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES).  Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.  Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
