Man fatally shot in home-invasion robbery in south Sacramento

A man was fatally shot during a home-invasion robbery Tuesday evening in south Sacramento, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department reports.

At 5:45 p.m., the Sheriff's Department received a call of a home invasion in the 8200 block of Auberry Drive, said Sgt. Lisa Bowman.

Bowman also provided these details:

A female resident of the home said two men broke into the residence shared by a male, herself and a young child. At some point during the home invasion, the woman came upon the male resident who had been shot.

The woman and her daughter left via the back of the house. She went into a neighbor’s house and called 911.

The assailants fled the Auberry Drive home and are still at large. The investigation will continue through the night.
