Woman shot at North Sacramento home. Suspect may still be inside, police say

SWAT officers and crisis negotiators were trying Monday night to make contact with a man suspected of shooting a woman at a home in the North Sacramento area.

The woman, who underwent surgery at a Sacramento-area hospital, is expected to survive, said Officer Eddie Macaulay, a Sacramento police spokesman.

Macaulay said the shooting was reported about 4 p.m. in the 2500 block of Erickson Street, near Frienza Avenue. Officers found a woman with a gunshot wound, and she was transported to an area hospital.

A man sought in the shooting was believed to be in the residence, and police evacuated nearby homes, Macaulay said.

No details on the circumstances of the shooting were available.
