Two people were injured Tuesday night in a shoot-out at the Golden Corral restaurant in south Sacramento, according to Sacramento police.
Officer Matthew McPhail, police spokesman, said the shooting was reported about 8:45 p.m. at the restaurant in the 7700 block of West Stockton Boulevard.
When police arrived, they found one man with gunshot wounds. McPhail said the man’s condition quickly deteriorated and CPR was started. He was transported by ambulance to an area hospital. McPhail said he is expected to survive.
A preliminary investigation indicated that the man transported to the hospital and a second man became involved in some kind of dispute with a third man inside the restaurant. Initially, the confrontation involved gestures or a verbal exchange, but was not physical, McPhail said.
But the situation escalated and at least one of the two men and the third man pulled guns and began shooting at one another. McPhail said no weapons have been found and no one is in custody.
In addition, a man believed to have been a bystander, either drove himself or was driven to a hospital, where he was being treated for gunshot wound.
McPhail said all involved were believed to be adults.
