The female victim later died and the man is expected to survive.
Police believe the shooting was a homicide. Detectives searched the area and spoke to witnesses and believe the shooter ran from the area before they arrived. The reason for the shooting is under investigation.
The shooting jolted residents at the apartment complex awake and sent at least one mom and her kids running for cover.
“I was pretty much shooken up, I grabbed my children, we ran into my bedroom, into the closet and just hit the floor and tried to stay out of the way,” said Isis Johnson, who lives at the apartment complex.
The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office will release the identity of the victim after next of kin have been notified.
