A 52-year-old man was hospitalized late Monday night after being shot in an apparent domestic dispute in Rancho Cordova, a Sacramento County Sheriff's Department spokesman said.
Around 11 p.m., a woman called authorities from the 3400 block of Virgo Street, alleging her son had shot her boyfriend, said sheriff's spokesman Deputy Jason Ramos.
Deputies responded and found the victim with a gunshot wound to the leg. He was transported to the hospital, where his condition was not immediately known.
Authorities set up a perimeter in the neighborhood to search for the suspect, who was believed to have fled on foot with the gun, Ramos said.
