Five injured in shooting at south Sacramento house party

Five people were shot at a house party in south Sacramento Saturday night, police said Sunday.

All five victims – a woman, three men and a 16-year-old male – are expected to survive, said Sacramento police spokesman Officer Matt McPhail. By the time the shooting happened around 11:15 p.m., the party in the 3800 block of 26th Avenue had gotten loud enough for a neighbor to call the cops. Officers were on their way to the house for a noise complaint when the call was reclassified as a shooting.

McPhail said it looks as if a man at the party got into an argument with another party-goer, pulled a gun and began firing. Detectives are trying to determine what the fight was about. The five hit by the blast of bullets had injuries ranging from superficial to serious, McPhail said. All were rushed to local hospitals for treatment. He said some of them have already been discharged.

There is little information on the suspect, but police believe some people at the party may know who the man is or have information about him.
