One of the two killed Sunday in Northgate neighborhood shooting identified by coroner

Two people were killed in a shooting Sunday evening near Sacramento’s Northgate neighborhood, police say.

Officers responded around 7:20 p.m. to reports of gunshots near Northgate Boulevard and Wisconsin Avenue, Sacramento Police Department spokesman Officer Karl Chan said.

Police found two males at the scene with gunshot injuries. One was pronounced dead at the scene while the other was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, succumbing to injuries shortly after arrival, Chan said.

At least one was an adult, Chan said. That man was identified as 18-year-old Floyd Allen by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office on Monday.

Homicide detectives remained at the scene for several hours and investigators are still working to identify a motive and potential suspects, according to Chan.

“Right now everything is under investigation, but based on preliminary information, we do believe this is an isolated incident, not just a random shooting,” Chan said.

No arrests have been made as of Monday evening.
