Couple shot while in vehicle in south Sacramento; husband wounded


A man was shot while sitting in a stopped car with his wife Wednesday night in south Sacramento.

The man, who is in his mid-20s, was awake and talking before being transported to a hospital for treatment, Sacramento County Sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Bowman said. The man's wife was not hurt in the shooting. No other information about the victim was available.

Bowman said the couple was inside of their car on 6th Parkway when they got into a heated conversation with a pedestrian. The pedestrian pulled out a gun and fired multiple round into the car.

Bowman said the victim then drove away from the scene and around the corner to Sky Parkway. That's when the couple was able to call 911.

Bowman said the suspect ran away from the scene.

Investigators believe the suspect and the victim did not know each other. Deputies continue to investigate the shooting.

Sacramento Fire Department uses new live streaming app to keep public informed

Sacramento Fire Department uses new live streaming app to keep public informed


The Sacramento Fire Department has been serving the community since 1872, making it the oldest paid fire department west of the Mississippi, according to the department's spokesman Roberto Padilla. Now, the department is among the first few fire departments in California to utilize a new app to further inform the public in the case of an emergency.

'Periscope' is a new social media app that allows users to broadcast live pictures from their cell phone camera to a potentially global audience. The app runs through Twitter, and users can connect with an audience in real time through their cellphones. It operates similarly to a live chat room with a video stream.

According to Periscope's website, the creators wanted to "build the closest thing to teleportation."
