The Sacramento County Coroner's department has released the name of a man who was shot and killed at his Del Paso Heights home Sunday night.
He was identified as Stanley Edward Lofton, 37, of Sacramento.
At 8:42 p.m. Sacramento police got a call from a man claiming his friend had been shot, said Sgt. Norm Leong, a police spokesman. Officers arrived at the 2300 block of Harris Avenue and found that Lofton had been shot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers canvassed the neighborhood looking for witnesses, Leong said. Police had no suspects or suspect descriptions.
Police recovered a gun several blocks from the Del Paso Heights shooting although at this time they don't believe it was the one used in Lofton's death.
"It looks really old and looks like it was laying there for a while," Leong said.
In another shooting on Halloween, a man in his late teens about 9:30 p.m. went to a make-shift haunted house in the front lawn of a home on the 2300 block of John Still Drive in south Sacramento.
The teen got in an argument with another man in his late teens or early 20s wearing a red shirt. That man pulled out a gun and shot the teen in the stomach. The victim was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Leong said.
