SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Residents in a South Sacramento neighborhood were told to shelter in place as police searched for an armed bank robbery suspect, Monday night.
Officers set up a search perimeter between Wah Avenue and Hing Avenue and Indian Lane and 27th Street and are going yard-to-yard in an effort to locate the suspect.
