A man was killed and one woman was wounded after a shooting in south Sacramento on Tuesday night, authorities said.
According to Sgt. Tess Deterding, spokeswoman for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, a call reporting shots fired in the 3900 block of 42nd Avenue was received around 6 p.m. Responding deputies found a woman with a gunshot wound to her upper body. She was transported to a local hospital.
Shortly after, authorities found an unconscious man with a gunshot wound, Deterding said. Deputies say they started CPR on the scene before transporting him to a hospital, where he was declared dead.
Deterding initially said that sheriff’s officials believed there was a third victim who was injured in the shooting, but the Sheriff’s Office in a news release Wednesday morning said this information turned out to be inaccurate and that only two people were shot.
“Originally, the Communications Center was advised a third victim, an adult female, walked into an area hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound,” the news release said. “Detectives determined this information was not accurate and the only gunshot victims were the 29-year-old male and 47-year-old female located at the scene by deputies.”
No suspect information or motive for the shooting was known as of Wednesday morning, according to the news release.
