2 hospitalized after shooting in Sacramento

Police say the shooting happened along the 2600 block of Kit Carson Street

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Two people are in the hospital after a reported shooting near the Upper Land Park area of Sacramento.

The Sacramento Police Department said the shooting happened along the 2600 block Kit Carson Street.

Two women were taken to the hospital, but no additional information was released.

A shooting recently happened Friday evening along the 2600 block of Kit Carson Street. However, it's unclear if the two incidents are related. Sacramento police told ABC10 that their officers will determine whether the two shootings are related as the investigation continues.

'My kids could be in the line of fire'

A concerned mother in the area said the gun crimes worry her.

"Every time something like this happens, you must think that could have been me? That could be my kids. That’s the first thought," said the mother, who didn't want to be identified.

 Along with the deadly shooting on Friday, she said someone shot into her neighbor's window.

"She didn’t even know she woke up and stepped on the bullet. Right across the way, their house was all shot up. It’s too close for comfort. My kids could be in the line of fire," she said.

Activist Berry Accius said people have been calling for more security, speed bumps to slow speeding traffic and surveillance cameras. He hopes that something can be done about what the community has been seeing.

"Who is going to be bold enough to have an afternoon shooting? The murder, an afternoon shooting, anyone that bold knows that there’s no security, knows that there’s no camera, knows that there’s no consequences," said Accius.

As a consequence, some have a growing sense of fear and unease.

"There’s good people in here who have nothing to do with the crimes that are going on, but it’s the innocent that fall victim," said the concerned mother.
