3 wounded in drive-by shooting during family gathering

Sacramento County sheriff's deputies are looking for the people behind a drive-by shooting in south Sacramento that left three family members injured.

The three people were hit in the lower body. Deputies said one man in his 50s is in critical, but stable, condition. A woman in her 50s and a man in his 20s received non-life threatening injuries.

A relative said they were having a family gathering at the home in the 5100 block of Thurman Way when shots were fired about 8:30 p.m. Friday.

According to relative Tyrone Lim, several adults were in front of the home and two kids were inside when a car pulled up and someone fired as many as 5 to 10 gunshots at the home.

Lim said he and others were just feet away when the shooting broke out. He said he felt very lucky.

"Someone was watching over me. It's just a senseless act, innocent people getting shot over nothing," Lim explained. "We don't have beef with anybody. We don't have beef with anybody around here. We just go to work just like everybody else."

Lim said he does not understand why his family would be targeted.

The car is described as a light colored sedan that took off in the direction of Stockton Boulevard. Witnesses said they saw two men in the car. If you have any information, you are asked to call police.
