Bee reporters answer questions about area crime news, trends and other issues.

QUESTION: During the 1990s, a woman named Kristy King was shot in a drive-by shooting as she was moving into an apartment on O Street. Were her killers ever caught?
Submitted by: C12, Sacramento

ANSWER: Although two youths, one 17 years old and the other 18, were arrested in connection with the March 30, 1994, shooting death of Kristy Ann King, court records do not show that either was charged in the case.

Authorities at the time described King, 33, as the innocent victim of a gang-retaliation shooting. She was moving into an upstatirs apartment at 21st and U streets at 9:30 p.m. when she heard a neighbor calling police to report two gang members lurking outside the apartment, according to a story in The Bee.

The neighbor armed herself and headed outside to warn another neighbor to stay away, and one of the suspected gang members started shooting at the complex. A stray bullet hit King in the back of the head and she died a short time later at UC Davis Medical Center.
