Christmas Eve in Sacramento has its share of violence

By Rick Daysog

Violent crime didn't take the day off on Christmas Eve.

Shortly after noontime, Sacramento police officers came to the aid of a motorist near 3rd and J streets who said his nephew who was a passenger had been shot.

Police said they found a large amount of marijuana in the car but the driver said he had a prescription for medical marijuana. The victim had non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital.

At 1:40 p.m., police responded to an attempted robbery at a gasoline station at the 1100 block of 43rd Avenue. A motorist said he was sitting in his car while filling up when two suspects allegedly demanded money by putting what he thought was a gun to his neck. The victim said he drove off without money being taken.

Police also were called to investigate a possible drug lab at an apartment complex at the 1600 block of Kathleen Avenue at 10 p.m. Friday. Police and fire officials didn't find a lab but discovered a small amount of crystal methamphetamine and two loaded guns.

One suspect fled the scene but was apprehended while another struggled with officers before he was taken into custody. A third suspect was taken into custody without incident.
