South Sacramento robbery attempt ends with one dead

Bee Metro Staff

Two men were shot, one fatally, when they apparently tried to run from a pair of armed robbers in south Sacramento, according to a police statement released Saturday.

Police said officers responded to reports of gunfire in the 6100 block of Stockton Boulevard at 11:09 p.m. Friday. The officers found one victim with a gunshot wound to the lower body that did not appear to be life-threatening, police said. But a second victim discovered a short time later was suffering from critical gunshot injuries and eventually was declared dead at the scene by Sacramento Fire personnel.

An initial investigation showed the victims, who were not identified, had been approached by two armed men who were trying to rob them. The victims were shot as they tried to leave the scene.

Two suspects, both described as African Americans in their late teens with thin builds, were seen fleeing the area immediately after the incident.

The Sacramento Police Department is urging anyone with information about this crime to contact the dispatch center at (916) 264-5471 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP (4357) or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES).
