Two people wounded Thursday at site of Wednesday’s rolling gunbattle

Sacramento police are investigating a south Sacramento shooting that sent two people to a hospital Thursday afternoon.

Sgt. Bryce Heinlein, police spokesman, said officers were dispatched at 3:24 p.m. to Majorca Circle, east of Franklin Boulevard and north of Cosumnes River Boulevard, after receiving reports of the sound of gunshots in the area.

He said there were conflicting reports as to where the shooting occurred, and officers determined that it happened at a shopping center in the 5500 block of Mack Road. That’s the same area where a rolling gunbattle between occupants of two vehicles ended in a collision Wednesday.

One person from Thursday’s shooting showed up at Kaiser South Medical Center with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, Heinlein said. Another person, similarly wounded, was found at the scene and transported to a hospital.

Officer Traci Trapani said investigators late Thursday afternoon were still trying to determine the circumstances that led to the shooting. It was not known whether Thursday’s shooting was related to Wednesday’s gunbattle.

The shooters have not been located.
