Update: One dead, another injured in Meadowview shooting

Homicide.jpgOne young man is dead and another injured after the two apparently exchanged gunfire following an altercation on a Meadowview street, according to Sacramento police.

The dead man was only identified as being in his 20s. The wounded man, also in his 20s, suffered non life-threatening injuries, said police Sgt. Matt Young.

According to police, the man who was killed and possibly one other person approached a home in the 3500 block Reel Circle on foot shortly after 11:30 a.m. An argument unfolded with one resident of the home, and gunfire was exchanged, Young said. Two of the men were struck.

Sacramento police responded to the scene after callers reported shots heard in the area and one person seen lying in the street. Officers located the two victims in the area of Reel Circle and Detroit Boulevard. One victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was taken to a local hospital.

Nearby Susan B. Anthony Elementary School was locked down for about an hour, but no injuries or incidents were reported on campus.
