One of four Foothill Farms shooting victims dies in hospital

A woman who was shot along with three others at a Foothill Farms apartment last week died of her injuries Monday.

Sungaya Fleming, 38, was one of four people wounded when someone fired through the closed door of the apartment in the 4800 block of Myrtle Avenue on Dec. 12.

Sixteen people were inside at the time. Five were children ranging in age from 4 to 16 years old, authorities said.

The other three victims are recovering, according to a Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department news release.

The Sheriff’s Department received several 911 calls shortly before 9 p.m. on Dec 12 regarding gunshots. Callers said several people had been shot.

Deputies located four wounded victims. In addition to Fleming, the victims were a 15-year-old girl, a 39-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man. Deputies rendered medical aid until Sacramento Metro Fire personnel arrived. The four were taken to hospitals.

Sheriff’s officials said they have not determined how many shooters were involved.
