Four injured in drive-by shooting in south Sacramento

Four people suffered non-life threatening injuries early Sunday morning in a drive-by shooting in the Parkway neighborhood in south Sacramento.

The incident happened shortly before 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the 6500 block of 46th Street, when the Sacramento County Sheriff’s department started getting multiple calls from people who heard shots fired in the area. At least three of the four victims were transported to local hospitals.

Deputies arrived to find three victims at the scene. About an hour and a half later, a fourth shooting victim, whom authorities believe was shot in the same incident, turned up. It was not known if the fourth victim went to a hospital.

Authorities were trying to determine Sunday if any of the shooting victims knew each other and how the incident began. The preliminary investigation indicated that people in more than one vehicle may have been involved in the shooting. No description of the vehicles were available Sunday. It was not known how many suspects were involved, or what the motive was.
