On an early morning of December 28th before 5AM, a 15 year old male was shot in the parking lot of WinCo. First of all, it started off with the two suspects exiting the store and encountered a very brief verbal exchange with the victim. According to Elk Grove Police Department, while the victim and his group was walking towards their vehicle, the suspects got into a white Toyota sedan and drove towards them. Afterwards, the vehicle stopped and the driver exited the vehicle. He pointed the handgun and shot the victim and then fled the scene in the white Toyota sedan.
On Saturday December 29th, Elk Grove Police Department released the suspect’s pictures, asking for the community’s effort in locating the persons responsible for the shooting. Later, they arrested a 17 year old juvenile from Sacramento after he turned himself in.
