Two men were shot outside a Meadowview home this afternoon as the result of an ongoing family dispute involving a graduation, according to Sacramento police.
The victims, 21- and 31-year-old cousins, are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries at local hospitals, said police Officer Michele Gigante. Their 33-year-old female cousin is in custody, accused of driving the car used in the shooting, and police are looking for the shooter, Gigante said.
Police responded to Icarus Court, near Mack Road and Franklin Boulevard, about 4 p.m. today after two men were reported shot. Detectives later learned that the gunfire stemmed from a family dispute among cousins after one cousin was not invited to a graduation, Gigante said.
Officers quickly located and arrested the female cousin on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. They are interviewing her about her passenger, who police believe was the gunman.
"It's just a matter of time before we identify the shooter and capture him," Gigante said.
