Detectives are investigating the deaths of two men shot overnight in separate killings at opposite ends of Sacramento County.
Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies responded about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday to the 6800 block of Harlequin Way in North Highlands where gunshots had been reported. Deputies found a man in his mid-20s lying motionless outside a home.
The man had been shot several times in his upper body. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
In an apparently unrelated shooting, the body of a man was found on a south Sacramento street about 4:45 a.m. Thursday. The man was found in the roadway near Mack Road and Center Parkway, the victim of gunfire, said Sacramento police spokesman Sgt. Doug Morse.
