Police seek suspect in Elk Grove shooting

By Cynthia Hubert

Elk Grove police are searching tonight for a suspect who fled after allegedly shooting a man in the head in an altercation outside of a record store.

Officer Christopher Trim said police got word of a disturbance outside of Dimple Records in the 9600 block of Elk Grove-Florin Road at around 9:25 p.m. and minutes later received a report of shots being fired. Police arrived to find a man down in the parking lot with a gunshot wound to his head.

Witnesses said the shooter fled in a black Ford Explorer with the license plate 3BHF649. Trim described the suspect as a white male, 25 to 30 years old, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall and 250 pounds, wearing a black pea coat, black jeans and shoulder-length hair.

He said the shooting victim was taken to a local hospital, but his condition was uncertain late Sunday.
