    Here is the summary from the robbery/shooting last night.

    Time: 2222 hours
    Report #: 15-002933
    Charges: PC 211, 245(A)(2)
    Location: 8600 block of Hume Ct.
    Victim: WONG, WAYLAND (AMA, 35)
    Suspects: UNKNOWN (BMA’s)

    V-1 was in the driveway of his residence when he was confronted by two black male suspects wearing dark clothing. During an altercation, the suspects took personal property from V-1. One of the suspects then shot V-1 in the upper torso. As the suspects fled on foot, the armed suspect fired the handgun in the direction of V-1’s wife who was near their residence. The suspects possibly fled the location in a dark colored vehicle. V-1 was transported to a local area hospital suffering from non-life threatening injuries.

    It was not random. My street. It’s a very long court, not the sort of area someone lies in wait. Wife believes they followed them home. I feel certain this was not random but suspects followed them. Suspects parked one house away and walked over and confronted him as he pulled into driveway. Grabbed gold necklace (wife believes this is what they were after), wallet and phone. Some sort of fight (maybe he didn’t give stuff up easily? not sure) and shot was fired. Wife came back out (she’d gone in), saw husband on ground, they shot at her, missed. That coincides with the 2 shots I heard approx 10 seconds apart. They ran back to their car and sped backwards out of court (witnessed by neighbor). We’re a pretty close knit community on this street with many long term owners, houses rarely sell here. Block parties once a year. This is just very odd and upsetting for us. Wife fears they’ll return.

    I hate hearing about these incidents in Elk Grove. Is the Victim OK?

    Any leads on the scumbags?

    Wow, it happened right in your court. I have some friends who live 2 blocks away at the court at the stop sign. Thanks for giving us an update or more of a understanding of what happened. Hopefully your neighbor is recovering. I try to not make myself a Target by having flashy things. I usually drive different directions home you can get to my house 4-5 different ways and at least 2 of those ways I could tell if someone is following me.

    Hopefully these guys are caught before they strike again.

    Shooting at people steps it up a notch, severity-wise.

    Attempted murder, aggravated assault, robbery. Who knows if the car was belong to them, most of the times no.

    Wow!!! This is horrible!!! I wonder if it was road rage or something. Seems crazy that somebody would follow someone home for a necklace. I wish all the best for the family.

    After looking at the map, and after hearing Julia tell us about the street, it is a pretty long court and it looks like it happened “deep” into the court. Maybe 8-9 houses in, so I’m certain he was followed home. 10:30 at night, no one is just going to be sitting out there waiting for someone to come outside at 10:30.

    This seems to be a developing pattern in Elk Grove. Spot someone at an ATM or maybe elsewhere, follow them home at night, and get them when they”re most vulnerable–and outside which effectively precludes use of deadly force safely (meaning staying out of the can)–and with 3 seconds to the car, not 20 seconds, the getaway is easy.

    Probably not just an EG thing, and since first reported several months ago I know I am more aware of who is around when I’m pulling in the driveway, as are the house ladies now.

    And the location from the house to the freeway. Get on the freeway and can be long gone quickly…

    It’s happened a few times in Elk Grove in the past 6 months where people are followed home.

    I can recall 2-3 and they have all been near the freeway. Stonelake, then 2 on the 99 side..

    I never go to the bank at night, one good thing I like about Wells Fargo is that there is one inside Bel Air, so I always go in there to the ATM machine, I never need to see a teller anyways. Need a couple of dollars, I just grab a 20 and go break it with the cashier.

    I generally just cash at the store checkout. I rarely use an atm or go to the bank. I mainly do mobile deposit.

    ATMs are just a part of it. Jewelry is a big deal too.

    A few months ago, I came within a few seconds of having my watch clipped in a K-Mart parking lot in not the best part of town. I was in the lot waiting for someone, and a friendly guy walking ( clue #1,missed) in the lot struck up a conversation. He kept approaching me, but was really good at it, and it wasn’t until he was maybe 20 feet away I realized i had my arm out the window with my good watch on, and he was totally positioning for grabbing it. I casually pulled my arm in the window, started the truck, and kept talking to see what he’d do. Guy was cool. Never broke character, just stopped and slowly started on another direction before it was over.

    Southeast Asians are a great target for these guys. They tend to value fine jewelry more than many cultures, and the amount and size worn can be a strong indicator of status. I’m sure they are targeted more than anyone else.

    There were reports last night of a shooting and a possible victim at Lamppost Pizza in Laguna. EGPD set up a perimeter and didn’t find any suspects or anyone that was shot. They had the helicopter out as well.

    I arrived at Bel Air approximately 10 minutes after, police were just starting to tape off the scene. I spoke with someone who witnessed the incident, he was taking a break in his car. There were two men who got into a fight near Lampost, a third person shows up and started to shoot. Two headed one direction and one ran into the parking lot near Wells Fargo and then headed down the street. The bullets ended up going into the building where the vet and jewelry store are located in the Bel Air parking lot.

    I’m so happy that innocent people were not hurt.

    You’ll be please to know that I came here first to check the twitter feed. It wasn’t updated so I went to the PD site and found it there. Is there a lag or does it update every so many minutes?

    Doc you are familiar with that all girl gang I run with 😉

    I’ve never been one to live in fear or lock my doors – as a matter of fact, in the evening we will be sitting in the family room and all the sudden the door will open with out a knock and it’s for one of the kids.
    But seriously, I might come home one weekend after visiting my parents and bring home one of the items he collects. I’ve had one picked out that has a beautiful pearl handle and feels good in my hand. Nah, I still won’t do that…

    So lucky that no one driving down Laguna was hit with those stray bullets. They crossed the parking lot and Laguna to to hit the Laguna Creek Vet and the jewelry store.

    True, but cases like that are so random, it makes it hard to do much about it. I guess if you see an altercation, run and duck. I am by no means anti-gun at all, but I just don’t understand this mentality where you get into an argument and you shoot someone over it. Gun control will never stop these instances because guarantee the people doing this don’t have registered guns and don’t follow the law anyway. That’s why when people start talking tough about standing your ground, you better have a good sense of what the other guy might do. Flipping someone off could lead to getting shot. Ridiculous. I am sure this has the attention of the EGPD.

    I do not let my Mom know about the violence in this city. I do not tell her about the bank robberies, or she would be very scared to go out, and its hard enough as it is to get her out of the house, so I just can’t bear to tell her. It makes me sad that we this is happening.

    She doesn’t watch the news?

    That Safeway area has had its share of issues. I think a couple of the robberies where people were followed home were from Safeway and the ATM at the B of A.
