Homicide on Center Parkway marks Sacramento’s 6th shooting death this week, police say

A man died following a shooting Wednesday night in the Valley Hi/North Laguna neighborhood of Sacramento, police said.

Officers responded around 8:20 p.m. Wednesday to reports of a shooting near the 8100 block of Center Parkway where they located an adult victim with at least one gunshot wound, the Sacramento Police Department said in a Press release.

The victim was taken to hospital, where she later died, according to the press release. His identity will be released by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office pending notification from the family.

Homicide detectives are continuing to investigate the shooting, police said. No suspicious information is available.

At least six people have been killed this week in four shootings within Sacramento city limits, police say.

Two people died after a Monday afternoon shooting in Old North Sacramento; police say it is possible the two men involved in the incident shot each other. Two other people were killed in a suspected drive-by shooting Tuesday night in Del Paso Heights.

Another person was killed in a shooting early Thursday morning on San Jose Way in the Oak Park neighborhood of Sacramento.

The four recent incidents are still under investigation.
