Gunshot victim found in rolled SUV

By Carlos Alcala

Sacramento Police are investigating the events that preceded a strange accident that sent several people to the hospital early today.

A white GMC Yukon eastbound on X Street flipped over near Alhambra Boulevard shortly before 2 a.m., police reported.

Officers found six people outside the vehicle, three with major injuries. They were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Police determined one of the car's occupants also had a gunshot wound in his arm. It was not known whether the gunshot victim was the driver or a passenger.

A gun was found amid debris from the accident, and two of the vehicle's occupants were "validated gang members," said Sgt. Norm Leong.

The cause of the accident is unknown.
