Drive-by shooting injures three in south Sacramento

By Cathy Locke

At least three people were wounded in a drive-by shooting in the south Sacramento area early Tuesday.

Sacramento County Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran said deputies responded to a report of a shooting at 12:06 a.m. in the 8000 block of Loucreta Drive, south of Florin Road and west of Power Inn Road.

He said a 17-year-old youth suffered gunshot wounds to the leg and head. The head wound was superficial, Curran said. A 21-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound, but Curran said reports did not identify the location of the wound. Both men were taken to an area hospital for treatment.

A third victim, a 27-year-old man, was dropped off at a hospital later with gunshot wounds to the leg and back.

Curran said none of the wounds was life-threatening.

A woman also suffered an injury to her foot, he said, but it was not known whether it resulted from a gunshot.

Curran said the victims have been uncooperative in interviews with investigators and details of the incident are sketchy.
