Juvenile dies after shooting at Carmichael party, sheriff's office says

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office says the Saturday morning deadly shooting happened at an apartment complex on Manzanita Avenue in Carmichael.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A juvenile has died after being shot at an apartment complex in Carmichael early Saturday morning, officials with the Sacramento County Sheriff's Office say. 

The deadly shooting happened before 1:15 a.m. Saturday in the 4400 block of Manzanita Avenue, according to authorities. Sheriff's deputies say they began receiving 911 calls Saturday morning reporting someone lying on the ground after being shot at a large party. 

When deputies arrived to the apartment complex, they say they found a male juvenile suffering from at least one gunshot wound.  His age was not released.

"I hear about three to four just loud close in range gunshots go off," said Joey Brownlee who lives nearby. "Couple of minutes later, I hear a female screaming and she's actually talking to another male and they're going back and forth so I think that she's either on the phone, I hear her tell somebody that he's bleeding out."

Crews with Sacramento Metro Fire responded to the scene and pronounced him dead.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office says they are still investigating the case and have interviewed witnesses and gathered evidence at the scene. 

"It's kind of scary that it was that, that close to me," said Brownlee. "Just hearing that, hearing somebody either in pain or going through that, that always kind of shakes you up."

Those with information on the homicide are asked to call the Sacramento County Sheriff's Office at 916-874-5115 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at 916-443-9357.
