Shots fired in Old Sacramento early Sunday, March 18, 2018, injured two males, according to the Sacramento Police Department.

Two men were injured early Sunday morning in a shooting in Old Sacramento, Sacramento police confirmed.

Shots were fired around 1:30 a.m. on the 1000 block of Second Street, police spokesman Sgt. Vance Chandler said.

When officers arrived on scene, they learned that a victim had been rushed to a local hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. They later learned that a second victim had gone to the hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, Chandler said.

A news photographer at the scene reported that officers found a trail of blood on the boardwalk near the Wells Fargo Museum, but Chandler did not have specific details of what evidence was found.

Officers canvased the area and "during a canvas, that is something our officers look for," Chandler said, referring to the blood trail. They also reviewed surveillance footage of the incident.

They are assembling suspect information, but do not yet have a motive for the shooting, Chandler said. He said both victims were male and that one was an adult. He didn't know the age of the other victim.

If you have more information about any of these people, please call (800) 222-7463 of (916) 443-4357, or report online at crimealert.org.
