4 dead in Calif. home attack, suspect woundedPolice: 4 dead after home attack in Sacramento, suspect wounded
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) ' Authorities sought a motive Sunday after an assailant entered a Sacramento home and shot four people to death, police said. The suspect also was wounded and in critical condition.
Officers who responded to reports of gunfire at the home Saturday night found three men and one woman dead, police spokeswoman Officer Michelle Gigante said. A fifth person, whom investigators identified as a suspect, was wounded, apparently by someone in the home who confronted him, Gigante said.
"The suspect entered a home, and shot four people," Gigante said.
Police said the suspect was in critical but stable condition Sunday, but declined to provide additional details. Investigators weren't sure if there were additional suspects.
Police initially described the killings as occurring during a home invasion, but Gigante later said investigators don't know the motive. Authorities have determined that some gang members may have been involved and the attack "doesn't seem like it was random," Gigante said.
The names of the victims have not been released. Two were residents of the home and two were what Gigante described as "guests."
Police were asking members of the public who may have information about the shooting to contact them.
