Elk Grove police are searching for two suspects in a shooting that occurred this evening in the 9800 block of Dartmoor Court.

Police spokesman Officer Christopher Trim said police responded at 8:27 p.m. to a report of a shooting. They arrived to find a male with gunshot wounds to the abdomen. The victim was taken to a hospital and Trim said he had no information on the man, his age or condition. He said the victim had been standing outside near a vehicle when the shooting occurred. No one else was injured.

The suspects are described as two men, 18 to 20 years old, wearing dark clothing. They reportedly left the scene on foot. Trim said they may be armed with handguns.

Trim said individuals have been detained on Fox Trotter Way, but it has not been determined whether they were involved in the shooting.

He said a California Highway Patrol helicopter is assisting in the search.
