Updated at 8:45 p.m. ET: Four people were fatally shot and one was wounded at a home in south Sacramento, police said Sunday. They have not determined a motive.
Among the victims were Xia and Lia Vang Yang, a couple in their 50s described as shamans in the Hmong community, the Sacramento Bee newspaper reported. Relatives told the Bee that the couple, who had moved to the neighborhood several months ago, raised chickens for the community for healing and spiritual reasons.
At 10:40 p.m. Saturday, police responded to a residence following a call about a shooting. There they found four dead; the fifth person was transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The fifth person was identified as the suspect, police told The Associated Press. He was injured by someone in the home who confronted him.
“The suspect entered a home and shot four people,” police spokeswoman Michelle Gigante told the AP. She said the shooting did not appear to be random.
