Witnessing a crime and reporting it can be just as frightening as being the victim of a crime. Here’s what you should do if you witness illegal activity.

Two men in their early 20s were injured in a shooting early Tuesday in the 4100 block of 49th Avenue in south Sacramento.

Both men were shot in the upper body shortly before 3:30 a.m., said Sgt. Shaun Hampton, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department spokesman. Neither gunshot wound was considered life-threatening, he said.

The victims, along with a third uninjured person, then drove their bullet-riddled car to Fire Station 57 approximately two miles away, Hampton said.

Fire department personnel then called police and other first responders, who later found broken glass on 49th Avenue. Initial 911 calls of gunshots being fired came from around Cuny Avenue and Franklin Boulevard, leading some to mistakenly believe the shooting had occurred at nearby Fern Bacon Middle School.

The men are stable, awake and talking but not cooperating with law enforcement, Hampton said. No suspect has been identified.
