Placer County sheriff’s deputies arrested three people in connection with the shooting today of a Sacramento man in Kings Beach.
Deputies were dispatched to 8645 N. Lake Blvd. at 1:55 p.m. following reports that a man had been shot in the face. They arrived to find that the shooting victim had been taken to a local hospital by a friend.
When contacted, the 19-year-old victim from Sacramento told detectives that the shooting was accidental, a Sheriff’s Office news release said.
The man, suffering from a single gunshot wound to the face, subsequently was flown to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno.
