Earlier this evening Elk Grove Police Department officials met with concerned residents about a shooting at a party on Spring Flower Way on Saturday night. According to police reports that night, there was a party at at home on the 5800 block of Spring Flower Way, when at some point there shots fired. Several cars and at least one home were struck by bullets. No arrests have been made in the incident. The home was also the scene of a still unsolved murder just over a year ago.
Around 25 community members attended the meeting. Mayor Steve Ly and City Council member Stephanie Nguyen also attended the meeting. Nguyen is the council member for the district and said she lives a few streets away. Ly and Nguyen pledged the city’s support for the community during the nearly hour long meeting.
Capt. Tim Albright spoke to the residents and outlined what the department is doing and how the investigation is proceeding. Albright assured the residents that the department has made this a priority and has assigned several detectives to the case. Albright said the department has been in contact with the homeowner, who lives out of state, regarding the current renters. He could not offer specifics, but said the homeowner is cooperating. Several residents expressed concern and said the home has been a “problem” house for some time, with a lot of people coming and going day and night. Albright said the department is working on addressing the issues. He also suggested starting a neighborhood watch group, increasing patrols in the area and working closely with neighbors to identify any potential issues.
If you live in a neighborhood that doesn’t have a neighborhood watch, you are encouraged to start one. EGPD will help by sending out an officer to coordinate and offer resources to the residents.
