One week after a student at Savannah State University was shot and killed, another unfortunate shooting has taken place at a different college campus. So sad.
On Thursday, it was reported that a shooting near Sacramento City College has left 1 victim dead and 2 others injured — the victims were all students at the school. Oh no!
It’s said the incident occurred at 4 p.m., following a verbal dispute between a group of men in the parking lot near the baseball fields — which is a couple hundred feet south of SCC . The gunman is said to be a man wearing a white T-shirt, beige cargo shorts, and of Pacific Island descent.
Reportedly, the suspect fled the scene after firing shots and remained at large hours later. So scary.
Sacramento police Sgt. Doug Morris confirmed that despite rumors that officers were searching for two suspects, there was only one person-of-interest being sought.
In a bit of good news, the school’s campus was declared clear at 6:30 p.m. We do commend the college’s thoroughness in evacuating their students.
One student noted:
“My stomach dropped. It was definitely really, really scary, but we all stayed calm.”
Well that’s good to hear.
Our thoughts are with the victims’ friends and family during this tough time.
Stayed tuned for more updates.
