Man found guilty in 2017 drive by shooting in Elk Grove

The incident took place in the 8600 block of Blue Maiden Way on July 5, 2017.

From the Sacramento County DA’s office:

Keyshawn Strickland was convicted by a jury of attempted murder with premeditation and deliberation, shooting at an inhabited house and assault with a semi-automatic firearm.  The jury also found that Strickland personally used a firearm causing great bodily injury on all three counts.

On July 5, 2017, the victim and his friends were at a house party in Elk Grove.  The homeowner shut the party down and everyone left the house.  The victim was walking toward his friend’s car to leave when Keyshawn Strickland fired a gun at least nine times from a car that was driving by the house.  Strickland shot the victim and several rounds penetrated into the home.  The victim was transported to a hospital, where it was determined the bullet had fractured his pelvis. When he was discharged from the hospital, the victim had to use a walker and re-learn how to walk.  Surveillance videos from surrounding homes led officers to identify Strickland as the shooter.  Six days after the shooting, Strickland was arrested for possessing a firearm. That firearm was matched to the spent 9mm cartridge casings left behind at the crime scene.

Strickland faces a maximum sentence of 32 years to life in prison.  Sentencing is set for July 24, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. in Department 35 before the Honorable Alan Perkins.
