A 35-year-old Sacramento man was shot to death and another man was wounded in early-morning violence Saturday in north Sacramento.
Sacramento police report that preliminary information indicates the victims were seated inside a parked vehicle in the 100 block of Redondo Avenue about 2 a.m. when an armed man shot at them several times, killing one person and leaving the other with wounds that are not life-threatening.

Responding officers tried to revive the mortally wounded victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene after Sacramento Fire Department personnel arrived. He was later identified by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office as Ronnie Jones. The other victim was treated at the scene.
Investigators have made no arrests and have not established the assailant’s identity or motive.
