2 suspected gang members shot in North Highland

From Stan Oklobdzija:

Two men, believed to be gang members, were shot in North Highlands this afternoon in what appears to be a gang-related incident, sheriff's officials said.

Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputies were called to the shooting at the corner of Ramsey Drive and Cortright Way a little after 3 p.m. today, Sgt. Tim Curran, sheriff's spokesman said.

There they found a 17-year-old Hispanic male shot in the neck and face with what appeared to be shotgun pellets, Curran said. Deputies also found an 18-year-old Hispanic male who suffered a shotgun wound to his hand and leg, he said.

Both were transported to a local hospital, Curran said. The 17-year-old's wounds are described as life-threatening, while the 18-year-old has been declared stable, Curran said.

Neighbors said they saw a red Mitsubishi Eclipse with up to five occupants leaving the scene, Curran said.

Both victims were validated gang members, Curran said.
