A fight between three individuals turned violent and resulted in shooting.
Amar Gandhi, a spokesman for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, stated that “suspect 2” was down when “suspect 1” shot suspect 2’s companion. Then suspect 2 shot suspect 1 before escaping.
“It appeared that everyone involved in that fight knew one another. This appears to have its roots in something that occurred much earlier, he continued.
