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.
