The Elk Grove Police Department spend several hours investigating a home in the 5800 block of Spring Flower Way earlier today. The home was the scene of a party and shooting last week. No one was injured in the shooting. At a meeting with nearby residents less than 48 hours ago, police officials expressed optimism that their investigation was providing valuable information that could lead to possible arrests.
Elk Grove detectives, officers, forensics and animal control were at the house most of the day. Animal control removed several dogs from the home. No word on if the dogs were taken away or removed to allow officers to investigate the home. According to several sources, two people were possibly arrested. A name provided by a source for one of the possible arrestees does show the person was booked into the Sacramento County jail early this morning at 2 am. When asked about the police activity, Elk Grove Police Spokesman, Jason Jimenez, said that the investigation was ongoing and there may be information released later today.
Last Saturday night there was a party at the home. Neighbors said there were over 50 people at the party, mostly teens and young adults. At one point during the night, shots were fired. No one was hurt, but bullets struck a nearby home and several cars. Also a fence was broken as panicked party goers ran from the home. Neighbors said that since the incident they have felt unsafe in their homes and on the street. Capt. Tim Albright told the members at the meeting that it was unacceptable and the department was working day and night to bring about about a resolution and restore their sense of safety.
On Monday, neighbors contacted Elk Grove police about the home and what transpired. That led to the request for a meeting between residents and Elk Grove police. Mayor Steve Ly and City Council member Stephanie Nguyen also attended the meeting. Neighbors told police that the home has been the center of a lot of activity in recent weeks with cars and people coming and going. They requested EGPD take action against the residents. Police officials updated the residents on what was happening and the process moving forward and assured residents that this was a high priority for the department.
