A woman was shot and the suspect is dead in an Elk Grove shooting earlier this evening.
The shooting took place around 8:30 this evening in the 8900 block of Grovetree Way, in the 95624 area of Elk Grove. According to police spokesperson Officer Chris Trim, a female was shot in the arm and possibly the abdomen, sustaining non life threatening injuries. She was taken to an area hospital.
The suspect was initially described as being armed with a 9 mm handgun. Officers arrived and established a perimeter, asking residents to stay in their homes. At one point officers did enter the home and found the suspect dead of an apparent self inflicted gun shot wound. Officer Trim said the victim and deceased were related in some manner, but there were no details on what that relationship was.
