Two individuals are in custody, accused of firearms offenses, and one is suspected of firing a shot while fleeing from Sacramento police officers Friday evening.
Officers were in the 2700 block of Stonecreek Drive in South Natomas shortly before 6:30 p.m., doing what police spokesman Officer Doug Morse characterized as proactive policing. They saw a group of seven people, who appeared to be in their late teens or early 20s, standing on the sidewalk in the residential neighborhood. As the officers approached, one person ran and an officer reported hearing a shot fired as the man fled. No one was struck by the gunfire.
Morse said officers caught the suspect and found a gun that they think he discarded as he ran.
Morse said another person in the group also was found to have a firearm and was also taken into custody. The names of the two suspects were not released Friday night because they had not been booked.
Police detained the other five people and were interviewing them, Morse said.
“We were just lucky nobody was hurt,” he said.
