SACRAMENTO, CA - After a day and night of gunfire and bloodshed, a Sacramento County gang suppression unit worked the streets Thursday night to gather intelligence and make arrests.
The streets surrounding the latest shootings in south Sacramento seem strangely quiet.
"The community is afraid to be out. You gotta think about the retaliation shootings, if it is gang-related," gang unit Det. Nick Goncalves said.
He and his partner made a traffic stop on a possible gang member only a few blocks from one of the shooting scenes.
"We contact as many gang members as we can. Whether it's through parole or probation searches, vehicle stops," Goncalves said.
On the 3600 block of 46th Avenue, where someone sprayed a hail of bullets across front yards, almost no one was willing to talk, either out of fear or because they don't want the attention.
