Updated Jan. 2, 10:26 p.m.–
Citrus Heights police said detectives are investigating a fatal shooting on Monday at a Kingswood Drive apartment complex near Sunrise Boulevard, with officers reportedly conducting a related search on Wednesday in Roseville.

The shooting occurred shortly before 2 a.m. on Dec. 28, leaving one man dead and one hospitalized with “what appears to be non-life threatening injuries,” according to a police news release issued Monday morning.

Police said officers responded to the 7900 block of Kingswood Drive after receiving multiple reports of gunshots in the area and found two men with gunshot wounds. Metro Fire personnel pronounced one man dead at the scene, with the other transported to a hospital.

As of 10 a.m. Monday, police said detectives were still “in the beginning stages of the investigation,” but believe the case to be an isolated incident. Citing the “active and ongoing nature” of the investigation, police have not released any additional information.

On Wednesday, Citrus Heights police reportedly conducted “a follow-up investigation” in Roseville related to Monday’s homicide, according to an ABC10 news report. The suspect was not found, but two others were detained in connection with another criminal investigation.

Police said detectives “are urging anyone, including family and friends of the subjects involved with this case, to come forward with any information.” The Citrus Heights Police Department can be contacted at (916) 727-5500.
