Police seek help identifying suspects in July south Sacramento shooting

Sacramento police are asking the community’s help providing information related to a south Sacramento shooting that injured three people in July.

Officers responded to the area of Phoenix Green Park near the 100 block of Creeks Edge Way about 9:33 p.m. July 13 regarding a report of a shooting. When they arrived, officers contacted two adults and a 4-year-old child, all of whom had suffered gunshot wounds, according to to a Police Department news release.

During the preliminary investigation, officers collected evidence, canvassed the area for witnesses and searched for surveillance video. They determined that the victims were attending a family gathering at the park when people they did not know arrived in a dark-colored sedan. One person got out of the car, fired multiple shots from a handgun, then returned to the vehicle, which left the scene.

The victims took themselves to an area hospital, where they were treated for their injuries. All three were struck in the lower extremities and are expected to recover, police said.

Police Tuesday re-issued surveillance video, initially released a week after the shooting, that shows the suspect vehicle arriving at and leaving the scene. It shows the primary suspect, believed to be a male, exiting the left rear passenger door and walking past the rear of the car toward the park.
