Sacramento police say the fatal shooting of a man in midtown early this morning does not appear to be a random attack.
A man and a woman were detained after officers discovered the victim's body in an apartment on 17th Street north of O street. They continue to be questioned by homicide detectives but as of this evening, have not been arrested, said police Officer Michele Gigante.
She said there are no suspects are believed to be at large.
Callers reported a loud disturbance, breaking glass and the sound of gunfire about 3 a.m. When police arrived they found a man in his 20s with a gunshot wound. Paramedics rendered aid but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The motive for the shooting remains unknown, Gigante said. She said the two people who were detained and the victim all knew each other, police said. All three had ties to the apartment unit where the victim was found.
Homicide detectives and crime scene investigators continue to piece together what led up to the shooting and are looking for witnesses. Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP.
