Sacramento police were dispatched to the area of 33rd Street and 10th Avenue about 9:45 p.m. Saturday. When officers arrived, they found that the woman had a serious gunshot wound in her abdomen.

Investigators have learned that a man walked up to the memorial from 10th Avenue and fired more than once into the crowd of people attending the event. A nearby security camera captured darkened, blurry images of the man.
Police said the man is black, about 20 years old and approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt, light blue jeans and orange or red underwear. The images are too blurry to reproduce in the newspaper.
Investigators believe that he is connected in some way with a Chevrolet Impala.
