Sacramento City College was under a lockdown due to a shooting on Thursday, September 3rd. According to NBC news, the gunman shot four individuals in a parking lot adjacent to the school. Three of which were injured and one was announced dead.
KCRA states that 25 year old Roman Gonzalez was shot and killed at about 4:00 pm. All four were hospitalized soon after shots were fired.
“I didn’t know what was going on at first, I just saw a bunch of police cars and later on I found out there had been a shooting and a student was killed. It was really scary and it just made me more cautious about my surroundings,” says college junior Talvir Birk.
Los Rios Community College District police department are investigating the case, it was said that there was only one suspect. They flushed out the entire school by 6:30 pm.
“We were on lockdown for about two hours and it was my first time being on a real lockdown, this is what all the drills were preparing for, one of the most terrifying experiences in my life,” says college sophomore Mairah Khan.
The shooter was identified and according to investigators, it wasn’t any random shooting.
“I was terrified to see this happening in my community, unfortunately shootings are so common now, it’s like we are numbed to the violence. I wasn’t surprised to be honest,” says 28 year old Ted Labissiere.
