A person was taken to an area hospital Saturday evening after a shooting near the Fruitridge Community Center in south Sacramento.

The shooting occurred just before 6:30 p.m. near Fruitridge Road and Mendocino Boulevard, according to Sgt. Tony Turnbull, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department spokesman. An argument preceded the shooting, he said.

The victim sustained a non-life threatening wound to the neck, Turnbull said.
