Police report one person injured in Meadowview shooting

Sacramento police investigated a shooting Friday in the area of 24th Street and Meadowview Road in which one man was seriously injured.

Sgt. Vance Chandler, police spokesman, said the shooting was reported about 1:20 p.m. and a male was taken to an area hospital in critical condition.

The shooting occurred outside and two vehicles were involved, but Chandler said it has not been determined how they were involved or whether it was a drive-by shooting.

Due to the severity of the injuries, homicide officers were called out to handle the investigation. Police were canvassing the neighborhood Friday afternoon for witnesses and surveillance video.

The area was closed to traffic in the afternoon and reopened before 10 p.m., according to a Police Department tweet.
